Surnames: Brajdich

My name is Joseph Brajdich and my grandfather was from Rakovica, Croatia. He came from Podstene, Austria (Croatia ?) to Calumet, Michigan in 1906 to work in a copper mine and my father was born there in 1913. My grandfathers birth certificate listed his name as Anton Carl Brajditch. My father and his only sibling (brother Albert) were orphaned in 1918 when his father died in a mining accident. The orphanage was in Marquette, Mi. and he later moved to St. Paul, Minn. where I grew up. They were some relatives in Eveleth, Minn and some in Cleveland, Ohio but I never met them. I have 5 brothers and sisters and my father is still alive (94 yrs.).

I would be curious what kind of responses you have received to your inquiry.
