Aprilovic Family
« on: Friday 11 August 17 03:33 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to trace the Ancestors of Marko Aprilovic.  His Serbia Birth Certificate states  born in Split, Croatia in 1881. He died in Sydney,NSW in 1949 no parents listed. His parents on Birth Cert are  Baron Ivan(John) Aprilovic and Baroness Jelacich. Apparently parents died/killed two weeks after his Birth and the Government was left to take care of him. Marko Aprilovic before he died claimed he was the grandson of King Peter 1 of Serbia??? Cannot find the name Äprilovic/Aprilovich outside of Australia. Any help would be appreciated.  Cheers Robyn

Thanks Roz, I'm sorry I forgot to mention I have all the Trove stuff in Australia and knew about the NZ Naturalization. Thank you for the link to his NZ Naturalization Papers.  Robyn

OK Robyn - you want info from before Australia  :)

Just adding that I could photograph his divorce papers https://www.records.nsw.gov.au/item/1160602 and https://www.records.nsw.gov.au/item/1152336 and probate packet https://www.records.nsw.gov.au/item/1340325 next time I am at the archives if these were of interest.  Yes they are unlikely to help with his origins but may have a marriage cert and a death cert.

Marko Aprilovic's grandson is looking to find Ancestors.  Marko married my Great-aunt Catherine Condran/Doyle's daughter Nora Doyle. I think his grandson has a Marriage Certificate and I'll ask him about the Death Certificate. Pretty sure he would have that.

King Peter was b 1844 as Karadordevic surname in Belgrade - so presumably one of his daughters was the mother of Marko - have you ever found a marriage of Karadordevic to Aprilovic ?
ADDED
2 possibles as Markos mother
Princess Helen
Princess Milena
so - Do you have any names of Markos children ?
did Marko have children in Lidcombe , New South Wales ? or Sutherland or Tuncurry ?
is this yours on geneanet?

Marko had 8 children, in Lidcombe, NSW . His wife was Nora Kathleen/Kathleen Nora Doyle.   I cannot find any Aprilovics outside of Australia/NZ.
There are Jelacichs around but with all different spellings. I was thinking maybe Marco's parents were heir to the throne and were killed, and gave the child a new surname.
