I'm trying to find the location of a town where an ancestor was born and raised and which he left to come to the US. His nationality is given a Croatian. The town, from 1891 to 1913 or a little later, was called Prapotnik, Yugoslavia. Spelling of the town varied. Any help would be appreciated.

BAN, sounds like bahn, and is the word for governor

It is a very common surname! What is the name and DOB of the individual?

I have a family that I was helping research some years ago (unrelated to me). Josephine Bam from Yugoslavia married Franciscus Haberle from Samobor, Jugoslavia. I do not know where Josephine's parents were from. But you may want to look at the spelling Bam or maybe Banick.
