Marc thank you, for at least trying,
sadly none of the links are giving me any details about the persons in question,
..should anybody come across an Ivan, Jovan or similar who was born before 1700
and who participated in one way or another in the "Great Northern War" please be so kind and let me know!
"Anybody, "possibly" in connection to ships, shipping and/or trade for example captains, merchants, ship builders etc.
and connected to "possibly" following cities/regions > Baltic region, St. Petersburg, Nice, Arco-Tyrol, Venice, Napoli, Paris and China/Shanghai, Tientsin etc."
Titled or Untitled, makes absolutely no difference to me!
Thanks again for your help!
