Thanks Louis.

The Skender line is in my wife's family. Maybe she will be interested to follow-up. We know back to Augustine Skender, born about 1850. He married Thrisa Rancinger.

Notes from Suzanne Skender:

"I, Suzana Skender, was born on July 18, 1877 in Brod na Kupi, a small village in
Yugoslavia. My mother, Thrisa (Rezi), was German by birth; my father, Avgustin
Skender, a Croat. My father was a postmaster in Brod na Kupi, and also ran a small
general store. My mother's maiden name was Rancinger. Her parents owned a glass
factory in Kocevje, in the Kranjska region. My mother was eleven years old when her
parents died. She had six siblings, three sisters and three brothers. Her sisters'
names were Fanika, Julija, and Ana; her brothers' names were Rajmunt, Daniel, and
Ivan. They were all rather well-off.
