The village Krajkovići is part of the hills settlements around TREBINJE. Since there are eight current parishes for Trebinje and over a hundred Serbian Orthodox temples past and present on the territory that they cover, it will take a while to establish through church schematism books and resources which parish your ancestors belonged to.
You can contact the eparchy Trebinje belongs to -
EPARHIJA ZAHUMSKO-HERCEGOVAČKA I PRIMORSKAhttp://www.eparhija-zahumskohercegovacka.com/node/1008

for any other help like directions on the customary way how best to ask for information from the SOC if you are a direct descendant of people who belonged to one of their parishes, and where to look for people from the same village today in the ex-Yugoslavia countries.
You are most likely directly related through a common ancestor with everyone with that same surname who originates from that village. Other villages in the same area this family lived in : DRAČEVO, GRMLJANI, POLJICE ČIČEVO.
