Assistance with Genealogy Research in Montenegro?

by Connie L.
(California, USA)

My question is a little unusual - my grandparents were from Montenegro. I am coming to Montenegro in September for the first time and am hoping to do some genealogy research. Do you have any suggestions for who I might contact in order to try and find out which cemeteries my ancestors (great-grandparents) are buried in or how to find their graves? Or any records of them, marriage licenses, where they lived, etc? I'm not sure where to look. My ancestors were from Morinj and Virpazar. Is there an organization, or perhaps any individuals, who can give this kind of assistance? Thank you!

I am also looking for my great grandfather’s birth certificate in Boka Kotorska in 1865/1866 (not sure). Could you help me?

Hi Connie,

What a fascinating question!

Funnily enough my husband has an uncle from Gornji Morinj (Upper Morinj) and I might know someone who can help.

I'll send you an email to get some more information.

Best wishes,
