Giuseppe Blazina

Postby cblaz » 07 Aug 2011, 02:03

My father, Giuseppe Blazina, aka Joseph; Josef; born Dec. 3rd, 1902 in Santa Lucia, Istria, Italy (now Croatia), within 20 miles of Pola. He returned to Italy in 1936. He was a seaman. Any information on the current name of the town or my father would be appreciated. Thank you. cblaz@pacbell.net

Hi,
I believe that Santa Lucia (currently: Lucia or Lucja) is a small village near Pirano ( Slovenia)

no far from Pola (Croatia)

it could be the town that you are searching for?

to the above istriaromanian posting.
it´s possible meant the VILLAGE Sveta Lucija = Santa Lucia belonging to Oprtalj not a church by that name in Istria (many churches would have this name)!

"Oprtalj/Portole ist ein Städtchen im Binnenland der Halbinsel Istrien, ca. 10 km nördlich Motovuns/Montonas. Oprtalj/Portole liegt in 378 m Höhe in hügeliger Lage. Nach Triest führt die alte, erste von Österreich ausgebaute Staatsstraße Istriens, woran kurz vor dem Grenzübergang nach Slowenien, im nördlichen Gemeindegebiet, ein massiver Meilenstein erinnert mit der Aufschrift: V Meilen von Triest, wobei eine österreichische Meile 7'586 Meter misst. Diese Straße gehört ab Sveta Lucija/Santa Lucia zur Landstraße mit der Ordnungsnummer 5007...."
