33. I think so

My grandparents were Catholic, though. They came from the area around Timisoara, and emigrated in 1920. Grandpap was conscripted into WWI - on the third try by the authorities. I guess after being in the war, and all of the upheaval in that area afterwards, he decided to get the heck out and head to America. I don't blame him.

One of the things on my bucket list is to go to Romania and do some more genealogy. His village is still there, so we may be able to locate some Church records. We're not so lucky with my Mom's side of the family in Croatia. My great-grandmother's village either doesn't exist anymore, or the name has changed and we can't locate it.
