I'm looking for info on Joanna Cvar (b.1882 in Vasslatnik, Austria; d.1936 in Esmerelda, CA). She was married to John Pozar (b.April 16, 1875 in Zamostec, Slovenia; d.July 26, 1951 in Marina, CA). He had at least 12 children and a second wife, Adeline Isabelle Cook. Any info is appreciated!!!

Thanks! Erica

Hello Erica,

I'm from Croatia but my father is from Slovenia, from the village of Zamostec.
I don't know who are Mihael and Joanna but probably their and mine ancestors were related. Later Cvars become different families.
Anyway I wanted to let you know that village Vasslatink you mention is now in Slovenia (part of ex-Yugoslavia), not Austria. In 1882 this was Austria, but it is a separate state now called Slovenia.
Vasslatnik still exist and it is called Slatnik ('vas' in Slovene means village), so translated to English this would be 'The village of Slatnik'.
Slatnik is located in part of Slovenia called Dolenjska, in Ribnica County. Ribnica is a small town. It would be interesting for you to know that today's major of Ribnica is a man with name Joze TANKO.
Zamostec is in the neighboring county of Sodrazica.
Here are some web sites you may look at to find out more about Ribnica and Dolenjska:
http://www.ribnica.si/

http://genealogy.ijp.si/
http://tis.telekom.si/
http://www.slovenia-tourism.si/
http://www.matkurja.com/eng/

If you would like to search more about this part of Slovenia, use words such as:
dolenjska, ribnica, kocevje, sodrazica

To find out more about your ancestors the best would be to contact local parish church. I don't have the address and contact numbers, but I'm sure you can find something on the web site or you can contact somebody from this web site (http://www.ribnica.si/)

Hope this helps.

I met Stan Cvar about 10 years ago when I was in MN for my sisters wedding, we were not able to conect our families at that time but I have discovered more about my family in the old country and was hoping contact Stan again, but lost my contact information. Is there any way that you could put me in touch with him again.

I have a Johann Cvar in my tree but he was born in 1823 in Slovenia, he married Ursula Sterbenk and died February 06, 1893 in Lipovšica. I would be interested in sharing information.

Hi, Stan is my husband Franks Uncle. I don't think anyone has any more information about them, then he does. Stan has sent me everything he has. Have you talked to him?

Yes, I met with Stan about 15 years ago, and contacted him some years later. He looked just like my grandfather but I have not been able to make the connection. Do you have contact information for Stan, it has been several years since I have talked to him and I have some new information from a cousin in Slovenia. Earlier we were not able to make a conection but maybe we can now.
