Surnames: Vouk
Vouk is an interesting name, doing a serach on the Online Austrian telephone book returns many entries of the name in many parts of Austria.

Doing a search in www.infoseek.de and restricting the search to Austria brings up (at least) 2 links to note!

One is for an accomplished Swimmer from Klagenfurt who recently won a Bronze medal in a Jumping competition in France.

And the other link is the following: For a head of one of the Slovenian Ethnic Groups in Carinthia.

You mentioned St.Jakob, so I presume you mean St.Jakob in Rosental, an area I too am researching. It was traditionally an area of many Slovene-Austrians

Thank you for responding to my posting. My Vouk ancestors hail from Zuzemberk, Slovenia. Through the years the current country of Slovenia has been governed or ruled by several different countries one ofthem being Austria. My Vouk relatives migrated to the U.S. in the late 1800's. To date, however, none of my research has turned up a Felix Vouk. The surname is not all that common and it is difficult locating sources. Good luck in your hunting, If I come across a Felix Vouk in my research, I will forward the information to you.

Thanks,
Keith Vouk

One of my maternal great grandfather's name is Felix Vouk. He married Anna Ochman. I'm not sure of the date or where their parents are from, but I think Felix came to America when he was aabout 4 years old from Austria. I believe his father ( Vouk) married Antonia Yanisha, a seamstress. These would be my gr, gr, gr, grandparents. Anna Ochman's parents names are not so easy to acquire (Adam Ochman perhaps) is all I have. Felix and Anna had the following children: Gladys(Holmgren), Valentine, Florine, Annie(Zinda), Alice(Schmidt or Schmitt) and Francis (Merrill). Francis married Murvale Merill and had the following children: Alverna(Thole), Jerome, Leroy, Elaine(Mauer), Gene, Marlyn. I am the eldest grand daughter of Alverna, born of her 2nd child, Del Rae Estella(Yanker). This is how I play into the Vouk name. It's hard work to find connections. If we are connected, let me know. Tina P/S the best dates I have to start with are Anna Vouk (Ochman) died in St. Cloud in 1962 at the age of, I believe 92 or 93. I was three and her oldest gr, gr, grand daughter. I recall the funeral as if it were yesterday. The churh was small, narrow and hot. It was day, but seemed like night. I loved her so much and was allowed to touch her and ask questions and say good bye. This may have helped me to have a healthy respect for death and life. Sorry I've been so long winded. Happy searching.

Surnames: Jansa or Janscha, Vouk, Merrill
Dear Peter, I too am looking for Vouk's. I have been contacted by Dr. Branka Lapajne, an Slovenian historian. He found an application for emigation by Johann Vouk, his wife Antonia (no last name given but it is something like Yanisha or Jansa or Janscha) and their one year old son, Felix. At about the same time there was also an application by a Valentine Vouk. I believe this must be Johann's brother who was the father of Frank Vouk, who was the father of William Vouk, Sr., who was the father of William Vouk, Jr., who comes to our family reunions. Bill has many siblings and they all have children. I hope we can find a link between us. I have also answered Keith Vouk who has a thread here. Here is my info from the good Dr. and also, please visit the Slovenian website. Much is in the native language, but there is a good amount in english as well. Slovenia is a very beautiful country and it seems sad that our ancestors felt they had to leave for a better life in America, but of course we owe everything to them for these choices. I hope I can visit there someday. Ok, here goes:
Vouk most probobly means "wolf" and is amoung the older surnames. The name can be found in Zuzemberk and also in southern Slovenia around Metlika or Crnomelj, in Slovenj Gradec, Styria and in northern Carniola/Kranjska, to name a few. My Felix and his parents made the emigration application on 3/18/1864. They were from Hrase which is near Radovlijca or Bled in northern Slovenia. The Dr. is going to get me copies of the emigration application papers and will also translate/transcribe. I would be happy to mail copies to you if you feel they may be helpful to your search. Valentine Vouk was also from Hrase and made application at the same time. Keith Vouk's ancestors also hail from Zuzemberk and was at one time ruled by Austria. I have always heard that my Vouk ancestors came from Austria. Keith's ancestors also emigrated in the late 1800's. There is another good website called FamilyTreeMaker.com and you can get to the Smoley Book, Settlers of St. Stephen Minnesota and there are Vouk Descendants listed there. I hope I have been some help. If I find more I'll write. I'm going to hole up some weekend at the Minnesota Historical Society and do research. Good luck, Tina L. Johnson, great, great grandaughter of Felix Vouk.
