Ancestry Maps


Croatian The ePodunk map shows U.S. cities with the highest percentages of people of ancestry. Learn about cities with genealogy and find in-depth community information about the ancestry cities.


The largest wave of Croatians migrating to America occurred from 1890-1914. Many were fleeing poverty and overpopulation in their homeland. Later, the Communist revolution spurred thousands to leave Yugoslavia for America.

In the 2000 census, 374,241 people in the U.S. claimed Croatian ancestry.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 2 percent of those people said they were of Croatian ancestry.

The links at left lead to information on other races and ethnicities.
