Chances are if you go back far enough. We have researched the area back to about 1750 and might be able to share some info with you. There were about 40 families who immigrated to Anaconda who all came from Bribir and the surrounding area. It is pretty fascinating.

We will try to make it as in depth as you would like, from just sharing some photos to a full on stand alone blog if you are up to it. It depends on your level of computer skill, but basically if you can use Word you will be OK. And of course it is free.

Most of the relatives who came here from Bribir were too intelligent to settle in Butte. Just kidding. I lived in Butte and it is a great city. The reason was probably there were more jobs "above ground" in Anaconda. There were a lot of families from Bribir who lived in Butte however.

Our surname in Croatian is pronounced "saft-ich" but was spelled in the 1800's with an "a" and ended with a "c". When the first wave of immigrants came to America this was written down as it sounded and over the years became Softich.
There is a rumor it is June 11th.
