Stepping Back:
The Vital Records of Veli Losinj from 1775 to 1949


Croatia Home Page

By Barbara J. Starkey

Stepping Back is an excellent resource for researchers who wish to identify family connections for Veli Losinj, formerly called Lussingrande. It is also a good source for those who are examining families in Mali Losinj, the former Lussinpiccolo, because often families intermarried between these two adjacent towns. "Stepping Back" is compiled from the secondary sources found in the microfilm number 2099889 provided through the Family History Centers of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS).

The microfilm is a copy of the original documents that are located in the Croatian National Archives in Zagreb. Nine items appear on the microfilm. Items 2 and 3 contain birth records spanning the time from 1828-1857 and contain baptism and birth dates, domicile number, name of infant, gender, father's name, paternal grandfather's given name, name of mother, and mother's father's given name.

Marriage records appear in items 4 and 5, and covering the time period 1828-1857. These records contain marriage date, domicile number, groom's name, groom's father's given name, approximate year of birth, bride's name, bride's father's given name, and approximate year of birth.

Death records in items 6 and 7 covering 1828-1857 contain information about date of death, domicile number, name of deceased, relationship to another individual, and approximate date of birth. A secondary death record contains some dates from 1854-1949.

The two status animarums list domicile number, head of household, dates of birth of head of household, and information about wife, where applicable. Hints are given on how to use the indexes and also how to find and interpret the original microfilm.

The index is not meant to be a replacement for the microfilm data nor the original documents. It is however, an important tool in checking, verifying, and finding family connections. Due to the difficulty in recording any document, Stepping Back does not contain all the information in the secondary and original documentation. Therefore, once a family link is found consulting the microfilm copy will, in many cases, yield further information. There is a wealth of information that appears on the microfilm but is not found in Stepping Back such as the occupation of the head of the family and the language used in the household. In addition, within the Status Animarum there is a complete list of the members of each family including birth dates and sometimes death dates of each individual.

The cost for Stepping Back is $45.00 per copy plus $15.00 (packing and postage) = $45.00 US funds in the US and Canada. Outside the US, the cost is $30.00 per copy plus $20 = $50.00 US funds.
