Hi - my dad is from Croatia and both my parents speak fluently. It's my fourth language so it's a bit choppy for me. But I was born and raised in California, so I might be able to answer any questions you have.

If you want to write in Croatian just send me a P.M.

If you go to google and search "Croatian Community", many sites pop up with links to Croatian people all over the world including the US.

I'm part Croatian...but seeing as i'm adopted, i've never met any of my family that's actually lived in Croatia--either past or present, nor have i met any other Croatian people (i did recently meet a girl from Bosnia though). My adoptive father actually traveled through Croatia in the 1970's once, and he somehow acquired a belt from a drunk Croatian soldier while he was in a bar. He still has it and refers to it is the "Croatian army belt." I'd definitely love to visit Croatia, and the entire Balkans in general someday...it looks beautiful to say the least.

im also adopted and my birth father is croatian. My grandparents live there. Apparently my last name is ferrick. I heard that that is not spelt like a croatian word so I am not sure if it right and may be was written down wrong. I would love to visit croatia and see my roots althought I will never meet my Dad and extended family unless there was a miricle. He left nz and went to australia when I was still in my mothers womb. He has a sister in the US with children. He was a fitter and turner. But lived in auckland working in a nightclub.

I feel croatian even thought I have not grown up with it, but may be Im just imagining it! I love olives, mediteranean food, (polenta, olive oil, lemons and garlic, cheese) diving, socialising, I am an extravert and talking loud, I also am quite emotional and strong personality, I am expressive with my hands. Are these traits a coincidence or is it that I am strongly connected to my roots without being brought up with it? I feel different that NZers because - everyone seems quieter. I feel I identify with Maori and other cultures more than the average kiwi culture even though I am white could all this be because of my genes? I don't know. Maybe its just me!

Talking loud, hand waving, diving, socializing... hey you would fit in perfectly in Dalmatia i.e. southern Croatia

Northern Croatians are more on a silent side, though not all of us.
