Article 12: Wilhelmina Lapornik

Researching ancestors born in Slovenia can lead to transnational research and the deciphering of data recorded in multiple languages. Here is the baptism record for Wilhelmina Lapornik, from the ‘Liber Baptizatorium’, Volume 7, page 47, in Pula, Croatia. The date given for the baptism is 21 June 1869. On other records for Wilhelmina Lapornik her birth date is given as 11 June 1869, but the index for this ‘Liber Baptizatorium’ gives her birth date as 31 May 1869. As the birth date for the child whose baptism record is just before Wilhelmina’s was 31 May 1869, it can be assumed that there was an error made when writing the alphabetical index. Wilhelmina's mother, Gertraud Lapornik, was born at Ojstro 11, Slovenia, and her father, Venceslao Vondra/Wondra, came from Bohemia.
My thanks go to Mr Janez Toplišek and the Croatian Genealogy List for their assistance in locating this baptism record.

Article 11: Žled (Glaze Ice)

Žled: Kratke zgodbe o izkustvih skozi srhljivo ledeno ujmo in čarobnost žleda v Sloveniji 2014 [Glaze Ice: Short accounts of the catastrophic, yet sometimes visually beautiful, ice storm that struck Slovenia in 2014]

This visually stunning book, written in Slovenian, contains photos and stories about the glaze ice storm that affected a large part of Slovenia in early 2014. Some of the worst hit areas were around Pivka and Postojna, and many people had to live without electricity or modern conveniences for weeks. The stories and photographs were selected and arranged by Andreja Blažič Klemenc and Franc Merkač.

There are accounts and/or photos from Vojnik, Veliki Otok, Svino, Stari trg pri Ložu, Solkan, Senožeti, Ravne na Koroškem, Rakitnik, Ptuj, Prelože, Postojna, Poljana, Podlipa, Pivka, Petelinje, Matenja vas, Maribor, Logatec, Ljubljana, Kokra, Koče, Kamnik pod Krimom, Kalce, Jakovica, Izlake, Ilirska Bistrica, Dolenje Jezero, Dilce, Cerknica, Cerklje, and Celovec.

There is also an attractive 120-piece jigsaw puzzle, of one of the photos, which can be purchased.
