Hello. I am trying to discover the origins of my father's father. My father is now 80. My grandfather's name is Giovanni Primo Biorci born about 1903. I believe he had two sisters, names unknown. I also believe Giovanni travelled to Ohio where he met my father's mother Olga Budin. They married but my grandfather was killed before my father was born. My grandmother returned to the then Yugoslavia where she gave birth to my father Ivan Sekondo Biorci in 1935. When my father was a young boy he remembers two aunties introduced to him as sisters to his father, asked if he would live with them in the United States. He refused to leave his mother. There was no further contact with the aunties.

I am struggling to find any links, any relatives. Does anyone recognise the name Biorci? I don't believe it is very common.

I appreciate any assistance. Thank you.

Hi, but by this record, Ivan Secondo Biorci born in Kosana( or Kozana) was the son of late Secondo by a certificate and son of Ivan by another.. Ivan is Giovanni in Italian Language, what lacking is Primo... however I cannot find a arrival abt a Giovanni/Ivan/Primo/Secondo BIORCI in USA as a well for Olga Budin... ... ?B=1220479
You are sure that Giovanni and Olga married in Ohio, USA?
