In 2022 Metkovic will be commemorating 600 years of the city. I plan to prepare an overview of specific period in Metkovic history based on demographic data. In particular, a period of Austro-Hungarian occupation of Bosnia, building of first railway to connect southern Dalmatia with Bosnia, bridge over Neretva in Metkovic. It triggered influx of workers, builders, engineers and military personnel to Metkovic and Bosnia from every part of the Empire. Though technically Bosnia was still a part of the Ottoman Empire, the area had become an occupied territory of the Austro-Hungarian Empire with the signing of the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Berlin_(1878) Treaty of Berlin in 1878. Austria-Hungary annexed Bosnia in 1908, sparking the Bosnian crisis, a major European crisis that reinforced pre-World War I alliances.t.

Purpose of this project is to identify those people by using marriage and birth registry from Metkovic.

Vlasnik parobroda Metcovich bio je austrijski Lloyd koji je od svog osnutka 1836. izrastao u najveću brodarsku kompaniju Monarhije i cijeloga Jadrana. . Početkom 90-tih 19. st. počinje intenzivniji razvoj turizma na Jadranu pa se osjetila potreba za luksuznijim brodovima.Parobrod Metcovich nakon više od 20 godina mirne plovidbe Jadranom na turističkim i izletničkim turama vihor Prvoga svjetskog rata odvodi u novu, posebnu ulogu koju je imalo samo pet brodova Austro-ugarske mornarice. Već 16./17. kolovoza 1914. Austrougarska mornarica rekvirira Lloydu parobrod Metcovich i prenamjenjuje ga u brod bolnicu (Spitalschiff II) čime brod dobiva i vojnu oznaku SS Metcovich. Osim njega rekvirirani su i parobrodi Elektra kao Spitalschiff I te Tirol kao Spitalschiff III.

Tijekom 1914. SS Metcovich, zajedno s ta dva broda bolnice, prevezao je ukupno 742 ranjena austro-ugarska vojnika od Albanije i Crne Gore do Pule i Trsta. Čini se da 1915. te veći dio 1916. nije korišten kao brod bolnica, da bi nakon toga ponovno bio uključen u vojnu službu. Aktivirala se bojišnica u Albaniji, posebno nakon uključenja Italije u rat. Tako znamo da 26. listopada 1916. parobrod Metcovich dolazi iz Albanije u Kumbor u Boki Kotorskoj.
