Barbara Ann Kalich Zuchegno

Now I am trying to get more info on my Maternal Grandmother's family. Her maiden name was Kalich and from what I am told its a Croatian Surname.

I tried to find my grandmother's birth certificate (Barbara Ann Kalich) where it would state her Father and Mother's names. But couldn't find anything online.

She would have been born in Tuscarawas County, Ohio to maybe a Frank and Mary Kalich?! I might have her parents' first names wrong. Frank may have been from Yugoslavia?! I'm not sure of Mary's (?) maiden name.

Anything at all would be a HUGE help. You guys are just awesome here and I can not thank you enough!

Thanks again! Its amazing what families I noticed on the Census. Names stuck around the area for a long time. Still ancestors there now. PLUS, a famous wood carver, Ernest (Mooney) Warther was on the same census as my great grandparents and the local Candy store that is owned by the Eiler family. Fun to see what jobs they had, ie: My great Uncle was a pin setter at the local bowling alley. :D

Now I can say I that I also have some Austrian in me.
