Purpose: This site is for English-speaking people who have an interest in Croatia -- and especially for people of Croatian descent who were born into other cultures and who are now trying to learn more about their ethnic roots. The focus is primarily genealogy, but there is also some information on customs, and encouragement to visit the homeland. ENTER MENU HERE.
