Introduction

Louisiana was settled by diverse groups of immigrants. One such group was those people that settled in Louisiana originating from the Slavic World. These Slavic immigrants were mainly from the current day countries of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia; known as the South Slavs.

The largest influx of Slavic people into Louisiana took place between the early 1820’s up until the turn of the 20th century. Most of these South Slavs came from the same geographical area that stretched for a distance of about sixty miles along the Dalmatian coast from the mouth of the Neretva River to the Bay of Kotor. They settled mostly in and around New Orleans and southward into Plaquemines Parish. They settled in these areas because the climate was similar to that they left behind as well as the proximity to water; many were sailors and fishermen dependent on the water.

Objective

This project functions as a 'repository' for the Slavic immigrants to Louisiana. One of the objectives is to make Master Profiles for the progenitors of these families; with direct descendants becoming the primary managers for these progenitor profiles.

List of Immigrants

The list below is an overview of the South Slav families that immigrated to Louisiana. This is an ongoing project. Please feel free to add or suggest names. The arrival dates, when indicated, are estimates in many cases due to the fact that prior to 1875 many went unrecorded. This list of surnames are compiled from US Census records. Many of these surname were altered upon arrival to America. The spelling in parenthesis is original spelling.
