Vujevich --- is this a derivative of a croatian surname?

Name: Joseph and Elizabeth Vujevich
Location: Croatia

Looking for ancestry of Joseph and Elizabeth Vujevich who lived in Pittsburgh Pa. area in early 1900's. I believe the surname was changed from how it was spelled back in Croatia.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
