    Hi there! My last name is Jakubac and apparently my great grandparents came to the US from over there, and I was told i still have family over there. any ideas on how to find them? and what does my last name mean? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi from "over there" ;-)

    Jakubac doesn't sound czech, more croatian/serbian. Jakubec does.
