The Loscar family can be traced back to Europe. The roots take us in the region of todays Slovenia. In 1870 it belonged to the empire of Austria - after the 1st World War there was a new state built called Yugoslavia. The Loscars came from a little village called Zagjore...it is also called "Sagor" "Loke", or "Cemsenik," it all means the same thing. Most of the Loscars were minors or farmers, they were very poor so they emigrated to other countries thinking they could start a better life.
This is the oldest picture that I have of the Loscar family, (sent to me by Josef Loscar). It shows my Great Grandfathers brother, Franz, his wife, Aloisia, and their sons, Josef, Felix, Franz, Martin, and Alois.
My Great Great Great Grandfather was Johann Loscar, born in Cemsenik June 20th, 1803. Johann married Maria dobcnik, and they had a son, Josef Loscar, born march 18th, 1830. Josef was my Great, Great, Grandfather. Josef married Agnes Pikel and they had 3 sons, Franz Loscar, born November 11th, 1859,(this is where the Loscar's in Germany's roots continue).
Josef Loscar, born, in 1870,(My Great Grandfather), and a third son whose name I do not know at this time. Franz stayed in Germany, but the other two sons migrated to the USA. They lived in Tucker county, West Virginia.
Josef my Great Grandfather, married Frances Mittermaier, and they had 11 children
