I have one who changed the name from Mihelcic to Michlich. Do you know if there are any Kobe's in Stari Trg ob Kolpi? I have an Agnes Mihelcic that married a Franz Kobe. I think they came from the same area of Slovenia. And, since I am trying to find that area, I am now wondering it there are/were any Kobe's there.
By the way, both surnames were changed in the USA. Mihelcic became Michlich (sometimes even spelled Michlick) and Kobe became Kobee.
