Re: [S-R] Rak and Strancic
- Dear Jeanann,
If the Veronica had a nickname (frony), actually spelled Vroni, she probably
was of german origin, because this is a german style nickname. Her husband
surely was german. This possibly indicates, that they were members of some
german population, maybe in Banat, part of Serbia or in some parts of today
But, you can be sure, they never owned a village.
Try this link and find your way to the Banat list, where many people wiil be
able to help you further.
