Looking for a Batalo interested in testing - patron St. Basil the Great

<< < (3/4) > >>

Michelle Batalo Mills:
I understood there was mention of Batalo that was a Serb in medieval Bosnia.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batalo

I also understand that it is definitely not an easy nor linear route to mapping my family line.  I was just using the suggestion of the members at the meeting from yesterday to reach out to the forum to ask if anyone knows a Batalo that might be willing to test.  (when I said I knew  I was from nobility...it was a more of a tongue in cheek/ lol comment to make.  I don't expect to be able to trace my family name back 600+ years.  I would be thrilled if I could get to 1800.

There are 4 different families, between Serbs, with the surname Batalo with different family patrons.

Sent Basil the Great
Sent Bartolomeo and Varnava
Sent John the Baptist
Sent Nicholas

Maybe you try some Batalo's family, or information about them, in Serbian orthodox communities  (Serb orthodox church) where they live.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbian_Orthodox_Church

But, the best option for your family Batalo is BIG Y test with 700 markers (FTDNA).

Michelle Batalo Mills:
Yes...my brother will do the Big Y test. 
Thank you for writing out the different slava for Batalo.  The Batalo on ftdna who did not match me is actually Dusan's son (who wrote that article you reference.)
Is the feast of St. John on Jan 20th?
Batalos in America didn't survive very well.   My dad likes to tell a joke that one of his cousins came over and said there were no pretty girls here so he went back home. 
The only male Batalos are my brother and my father.  A few Batalo men from California Batalos but they claim they are Italian. 
One more possible Batalo that would be Serbian but it appears he is elderly and I have turned over every corner of the internet to try to find contact information for him.
Any other male Batalos have died or changed their name to something I do not know.
I just actually left a message for the SRB Orthodox church in my hometown to see if I can dig up any information from them.  I had discounted any potential benefit they could provide because once the Great Depression hit, they stopped going to church. 
I greatly appreciate your suggestions....maybe the church will have something.  Or maybe I will reach out the Italian Batalo and see if he will take a test.  (Although he may not like his results.)

Yes!

Very interesting story!

Batal-o is rarely surname (like Cuturil-o)...

But we (Serbs) have the variation surname Batalo-vic.

Michelle Batalo Mills:
Oh thanks for sharing.  Yes...most Serbian Americans I know...last name ends in -ich.  How do you pronounce Batalovic?

For Batalo... Serbs put the sound emphasis on the Ba.  Is it the same for this?  Like BA ta lo vich?

Not to make you cringe but Batalo has been Americanized and is pronounced Ba towl o.   :-\

I double checked my great uncles documents and we definitely celebrated on January 14th.  So it is St. Vasilije for my Batalo.
