Sad news for Croatian genealogy

In "this small world of Croatian genealogy" (as Ivan Curkovic of once so aptly put it), any helpful resources are exciting to find. Unfortunately, one such resource has just announced that it will be discontinuing its services as of January 31, 2008.

As Ivan notes on his blog, the Croatian heritage web portal and organization Moja Baština (translated "My Heritage" in English) has not found enough interest in its commercial services to justify continued operations. (Croatian genealogy truly is a small world.) The web portal, whose purpose was to provide genealogical assistance to those interested in their Croatian roots, has also provided some nice free resources to site visitors including genealogy forms, tips on creating various family history projects and links to many helpful Croatian resources.

Read more about the unfortunate news at Ivan's post entitled Croatian Heritage Portal to Cease Operations.

Hmmm, just wondering... If we drummed up enough interest in the next week, would they reconsider their decision?

  1. It would be nice if they'd sell or donate their material somewhere else! It seems a shame for it to just disappear.
