Some of my ancestors, the Yuratich's (probably Juretic in Croatia) immigrated to Louisiana around 1850. I believe it was their "trupa" and not the local indian canoes that became the "pirogues" our company sells today. We are planning a trip to Europe in 2013 and would love to contact someone who might have more information in these areas.
sounds very interesting and if you have ties to Croatia - you should really visit this beautiful country. If you have some questions you can simply ask them here - maybe I can help.
All the best,
