I recently returned from a visit to Austria and Slovenia, to trace family roots. I had good success with my paternal grandmother's side (Korosic, Koroschitz), but no luck at all with my grandfather. (Kronfield, Cemernik). I noticed your thread "Kronlaende" and wonder if there had been a change to "Kronfield", as "Kronfield" does not sound Slovenian.
My Grandfather, Franc Cemernik, used this name up to and after his entry into the USA in 1907. He followed his half brother Joe Kronfield to the USA. After arrival he changed his name to Kronfield.
Franc Cemernik served in the army for 8 years and was stationed in Trieste. His entry papers to the US said his birthplace was Podgoric, which I took to mean the present day Kamnik. I visited the diocese in Kamnik and turned up nothing for "Cemernik" or "Kronfield".
Any comments or assistance would be appreciated. I am turning up a total blank.
