Hello!
I am searching for any information about my grandparents:

George KEZELE, born in 1884; and Frances GASPARAC, born in 1888, both from
Delnice, Croatia. George Kezele's parents were Anton KEZELE and Margaret
JURESICH. I know that several relatives were left behind when George and
Frances came to the United States in the early 1900's. Thanks for any
help-I am at a dead end with this.
