Name 1: Ivan Pipic
Name 2: Francis Siranovic
Location: Croatia

I am interested in finding any living descendants of Ivan Pipic whose spouse was Francis Siranovic. Circa 1850-1870.
Known children were Tomo, Matija, Ljuba and more. The spelling of these children's names may not be accurate. Son, Tomo, was born in St. Martin, Croatia, March 23, 1883. He came to US in 1903.
Anxious to learn more!
