New look and plenty of content at Rodoslovlje.hr - via them: book on surnames in Croatia

permanent link

Congratulations to the Croatian Family History Society on their renewed Rodoslovlje.hr website! Besides their new look the genealogical society offers blog-style news and other interesting items.

One post that caught my interest is a newly published book: Collection of Croatian surnames. This book appears to collect approx. 110,000 surnames from 6600 places in Croatia. The 2001 census was used as the source of the book. What is not clear to me is whether the book goes by surnames and gives the numbers of holders of the particular names by settlements or the other way, going by settlements. Or maybe both ways. The 2099 pages book isn't cheap with its price set to about US$257.

(Thanks to Google Translate's newly added Croatian service - and to Ivan Curkovic for spreading the word about it, it wasn't necessary to wade through the Croatian text of the Rodoslovlje.hr article.)

According to the surnames book, the most popular surname in Croatia is Horvat. Interestingly, the word "horvat" is a Hungarian one and it means Croat or Croatian in Hungarian. Horvath and Horvat are common surnames in Hungary, as well. In fact, Horvath is #5 on the list of most common Hungarian surnames.

Ivan Horvat is also used as John Doe in Croatia - via The Genealogue on Joe Blows.
