The Zaninovic family comes from the island of Hvar, located off the central Adriatic coast of Croatia.  Many Zaninovics emigrated to the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, where Zaninovic became Zaninovich.  This site represents some of those who settled in California.  Our immigrant ancestors stayed close to their families in Hvar, and maintained relationships among the clans living in America.

The first Zaninovich Family Reunion was held in Kingsburg, California in 1942.  Seventy years later, our 8th Reunion will be on October 7, 2012 at the American Slavonic Social Club in Delano, California.  Members of the Reunion Committee are also working on updating our Family Tree and the Zaninovich Family History Book.

Please join us as we gather together again to share a day of family, food, and celebrating our Croatian heritage!
