Would never have thought that the surname Konestabo was Slovenian. In all my research have never encountered such a surname. However, there are quite a number of them in the Slovenian telephone directory. There are at least five such families in Pregarje at: # 84, #22, #10, #49 and #27. Pregarje belongs to the postal district: 6243 Obrov. It is not far from Ilirska Bistrica. If you were to write to the families, it is possible that one of them is related to your Ursula Konestabo.

Hi there! I know it is few years later, and I have no idea if I might be of any help... My grandma was Konestabo from Pregarje, and we have many living Konestabo relatives from that village...

Surnames: Konestabo, Tomazic
(I changed my user name.)

So happy to hear from you. My search goes on. I know a little more now. Ursula was born October 9, 1879 and died January 18, 1962. She had a brother Grega.

Her father's name was probably Anton. She also had a younger brother Joseph who move to the US in the early 1900's. My father had a cousin Valentino Konestabo in Cleveland. His father was Joseph and his grandfather was Anton. Valentino's mother's name was Maria.

Ursula's husband Joze Tomazic was born April 15, 1878 and died December 11, 1971. He had a brother Victor who had 3 sons -- Edi, Pepi and Victor. Joze traveled several times to the US.

Joze's grandson Joze Tomazic, my cousin, still lives in Pregarje. He is married to Marta Samsa. They have a daughter Natasa Stopar. They are not in contact with any Konestabo's.

I sent a few letters to Konestabo's in Pregarje a couple of years ago but never heard anything back.

Any further info you could give me would be appreciated.

Kathy Dillon

Hello again!
This is fine, because I want to start building my own family tree,and i guess that people you are seeking are my ancestors as well... Konestabo was modified surname of Constable, apparently one of Napoleon's soldiers fell in love with someone from Pregarje and decided to stay there,coward and betrayer of french nation ;)...Well, that is what my grandma said..
Could you give me your e-mail adress so i can connect you with my relative (she is very kind young girl).

regards,
Ana

That is very interesting!

We definitelly are coming from same roots because my surname is Zadnik and my grandma was Konestabo. I am visiting Pregarje from time to time. I will ask my father if he knows any of these names.
I live in the UK now.
