Rod Čuvalo/Čuvalo Family tree

Dragi Čuvali diljem svijeta,

Ovdje je naveden u Excel formatu kratak pregled muške loze roda Čuvalo. Nadam se da ćete ga moći slijediti. Svaki stupac od lijeva na desno je jedna generacija.

Za početak, malo ću vam pomoći. Koliko je do sada poznato, prvi put se naše prezime spominje 1742. godine. Tada je u Tihaljini živio Grgo Čuvalo. U njegovoj obitelji je bilo 6 odraslih osoba i jedno dijete. Također, 1742. krizman je šestogodišnji Grgo Čuvalo iz Tihaljine. Ne znamo da li je to Grgin sin ili unuk. Grgo stariji bi mogao biti rođen oko c. 1700. godine.

Tek generaciju kasnije nalazimo Čuvale u Proboju. Bili su to braća Jure, Filip i Ante (stupac C). Jurin unuk se priženio na Služanj i tamo su njegovi potomci izumrli nakon 2. svjetskog rata. Jedan od Čuvala sa Služnja umro je u Americi.

Dakle, svi Čuvali u Proboju potječu od Filipa i Ante. Grane i ogranke potomaka od ove dvojice naći ćete u različitim bojama. Nadam se da ćete moći tabelu slijediti i pronaći tko vam je bio djed, pradjed, šukundjed, kao i tko su vam bliži i dalji rođaci po očevoj strani u Čuvala danas.

Danas ima Čuvala diljem svijeta pa nisam siguran da su najmlađi muški potomci ovdje navedeni.

Dear Čuvalo(s)/Cuvalo(s)/Chuvalo(s)/Cubalo(s) around the world:

I have prepared a spreadsheet of Čuvalo male genealogy. Why are the daughters not included? Simply said, it would have been too big an undertaking and very hard to manage in a single spreadsheet. By making this a “male only” table, I thought, you would be able to trace at least your father’s ancestry. 

Here is some basic historical information about the Čuvalo clan.  As far as we know, our surname was first mentioned in 1742.  At that time, Grgo Čuvalo lived in the village Tihaljina.  There were 6 adults and one child in his family.  Also, in 1742, a six-year-old boy, Grgo Čuvalo, from Tihaljina was confirmed.  Most likely the boy was Grgo senior’s son or possibly his grandson.  The elder Grgo must have been born around 1700 A.D.

A generation later, we find the Čuvalos in Proboj.  At the time, there were three brothers: Jure, Filip and Ante (column C). Jure’s descendants (through marriage) moved to the village of Služanj, near Čitluk also in Herzegovina, but that branch of our clan died out after World War II. One of the sons died in America.

Therefore, all the Čuvalos in Proboj descend from two brothers, Filip and Ante. If you follow the spreadsheet from left to the right, you will find that each column represents one generation. The Čuvalo family groupings are presented in different colors. For example, you will find who belongs to the clan “Jurići”, “Lukinovci”, “Cvitanovci” etc. 

I hope that you will be able to follow the table and find out who was your grandfather, great-grandfather etc., and also who are your closest relatives on your father’s side in the Čuvalo clan today.

One thought on “Rod Čuvalo/Čuvalo Family tree

  1. First of all, thank you for your amazing work!! What a god given present to know exactly where your ancestors are from and to what place on earth you belong to at heart.

    Ja sam Karolina Cuvalo (rod. 1999), kcer od Davora (Cukusici -> Mate – Boro – Davor). Mi zivimo u njemackoj ali idemo svaku godinu kuci.

    One thing to correct: My cousins name is Mate, not Matej. Znaci “Cukusici -> Mate – Boro – Damir – Ivan/Berislav/Mate”

    I intend to marry and keep my name so our heritage will live on. I also intent to get a PhD in sports science in Germany so our family will gain another Dr. ! How cool is that! I am so incredibly proud of all of us. I wish I could get to know every single one of us.

    Pozdrav i zbogom!
