Here are "all" the STOJIC, Dusan listed as killed in WW II.

Most of the places are in Croatia or Bosnia, except Crvencevo, which is SE of Belgrade and ŠIŠATOVAC which is near Sremska Mitrovica

Thanks Robert, I am used to doing Finnish research where farmnames are often used as last names.
For now, I will assume the Dusan born in 1935 is a son and the Dusan born in 1900 to be the father who was killed in the war.
Could I find this info online?
Are there any DNA, mtDNA studies being done on Serbian lines?
Thanks so much!
Jennifer

Thanks Robert, that site is really informative. And thank goodness, it's in english!
I didn't find much in the way of Serbian genetics on Google and since I have no contact with this side of my children's heritage, I guess I am a loss.
Are there parish records online? I know that religion was down-played during a certain time period but I'm wondering if I could search some earlier records--I haven't had much luck requesting records from any region of the world via snailmail.

Dusan Stojic, mis-spelling Stojcic?

I think I've been mis-spelling the name too. Stojsic, Stoycic?--definitely Serb.

"For now, I will assume the Dusan born in 1935 is a son and the Dusan born in 1900 to be the father who was killed in the war. "

I am afraid that your assumption is wrong. Name of the father is listed for this boy - it is RANKO.

Also, ethnic Serbs traditionally almost never named a son after their father - except in special circumstances, as an *ultimate* protective name after losing (many) children at an early age, especially sons.

If you are going to make any assumptions, then the assumptions should be according to the naming customs and patterns exactly the opposite - that DUŠAN was in most cases not the son of a DUŠAN.

These are the only two people from Sremska Mitrovica municipality who were killed in war with first name DUŠAN and surname resembling the ones you posted of adequate age :

Stanišić (Jovan) Dušan,
rođen 1884.
Srbin,
ubijen od ustaša 1942. u masovnom pokolju u Sremskoj mitrovici
(6002s00586),
He was from the village LEŽIMIR

and

Stanković (Gliša) Dušan,
rođen 1893.
Srbin,
umro 1942. na prinudnom radu, Bijeljina
(0602072008)
He was from the village SREMSKA RAČA



Surname ORLOVIĆ was present in the village LEŽIMIR.
