I'll look for cemeteries/memorials and take photos in the summer only, the only places I can't go are Ft. Richardson and Elmendorf AFB which closed to the public. If you have any requests please write now before spring/summer comes. I can take pictures close within 50 miles of Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula.

Good Afternoon and Thank you for your help with researching cemetaries. I am working on my family tree and trying to find the Pusich family of Sitka/Douglas Alaska.

Specifically, I am looking for a Daniel and/or a Dianne Pusich. They were siblings. The Pusich family owned/operated a restaurant in Douglas. This establishment apparently was still in operation in the mid 1960's. I do not know if it is still running today. It would be fun to travel and visit.

My great grandmother was (Jelisaveta or Elixibet) Elizabeth Pusich. She came from Jugoslavia as a young girl to Douglas. I do not know the members of the family she lived with. The story is that her father (Spiro,Spirto, Pero?) Pusich came to America and did not follow through on his plan to send for his sons, daughters and wife. The family lore is that he was a scoundrel and let the family know he "died." Spiro actually moved to Angels Camp, Calaveras, Ca. He apparently remarried and had 4 additional children.

His son (Daniel?)brought his sister Elizabeth, Dianne and one other to Douglas. They left their mother, two more sister and a brother in the old country.

Elizabeth (aka Slava) married John Petrovich in the Douglas area and gave birth to my grandmother Ann or Ani Petrovich and Milly or Mili Petrovich. The young Petrovich family moved to Nevada for mining. They ultimately settled in Tonopah, Nevada. Elizabeth and John Petrovich are the parents of my grandmother Ann.

Hi, First of all I want to say I'm sorry. I'm changing my add. I'm limited to the Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula which is considered South Central Area.

Douglas is quite far away about 900 miles.

I did come up with the Obituary for John Andrew Petrovich. Please let me know if you'd like a copy if you don' have one.
