Croatia - Osijek

Osijek-Baranja County is predominantly a plains region suitable for agricultural development. It is located in the northeastern part of the Republic of Croatia in the Pannonian region. The periodically inundated Danube River area has created the Kopački rit (Kopački Wetlands), a world-known refuge for numerous bird species, proclaimed a Nature Park and protected as a special zoological reservation. The Danube and the Drava (the latter being navigable up to Donji Miholjac and having the status of an international waterway up to Osijek) connect the area also with the European riverine network. Two airports in the vicinity of Osijek (Osijek and Klisa) connect the County with the Croatian airport network.

Tominac mentions in his book that there are Murković families in Feričanci, Otok (Vinkovci) and Komletinci. Otok (Vinkovci) and Komletinci are in a neighbouring county.

Đuro Murković

Đuro Murkovic was born in Lika. He got married to Mandica (?) in Lika and they moved to Feričanci. They had two sons: Josip and Slavko. It seems that at least one son, Josip, was also born in Lika before they moved. Đuro had a second wife with whom he had a son and a daughter : Mato and Kaja.

The information in this tree was provided by Tanja Murković who lives in Đurdenovac and her cousin Zoran Murković who lives in Orahovica. They have been speaking to their grandmother Ivka (Josip's wife) who still lives in Feričanci and much of the early history comes from her. Ivka mentions that the family had a saw mill in Lika. The only other saw mill connected to the Murkovic name was the saw mill in Stajnica, near the Dvor. We think that there is currently no link between Đuro and that branch of the family, so Đuro may have come from another town in Lika with a saw mill. 

Connection to America:
Josip had an aunt (name unknown) that emigrated to America. Ivka also mentioned that she and Josip had been in contact with Murkovics in New York who sent them medication on a number of occasions for their sons, specifically their son Đuro who was deaf.

Connection to Germany:
Ivka's son Đuro and his family live in Germany.

Connection to Osijek:
Slavko went on to have a family based in Osijek but we have very little information on this branch.
