Canada

To the best of my knowledge, the Murkovic(h)'s in Canada are all in Ontario.

Karen and Dario (Darko) Murković

My name is Dario (or Darko) and my wife, Karen and I live in Oakville, Ontario which is about 40km west of Toronto. We have two children Michael and Andrea.

Croatian's call me Darko and the English speaking world calls me Dario. My proper names are Jose Dario, but generally I go by Dario or Darko. My father, Braco Murković, wanted me registered as Josip Darko, but the Argentinian authorities would not allow it. Today, I even use "Joe" when making table reservations - I don't have an identity crisis, really. 

My wife, Karen was a Davies before we got married. She is of Scottish descent and I hope to devote a whole section of this website to that branch. Karen is president of www.gigasports.com

We met in South Africa in 1979, married in 1984, had our children in 1987 and 1989 and emigrated to Canada in 1997. Our first 37 years together have been good :)

Michael has a website http://www.mikemurko.com

My father was born in Zagreb, but only because his mother was expecting twins and because of complications with an earlier pregnancy, the doctors recommended she travel from their home in Stajnica to have the delivery in Zagreb. So we are linked to the Stajnica (Lika) Murković clan.
