Subject: [FEEFHS] Slovenian ancestry query and presentation.

I'm new here! My name is Mauricio Olivares, i've been searching for a while
on my family's roots, and one leads directly to Slovenia, propperly speaking
to Lokev and Skocjan near the Italy-Slovenia border. The family's name is
MUCHA or MUHA (i've saw it once as Muka or Mussa too).
My gr-grandfather's gr-grandfather was born in what is now Lokev (then named
Corgnale) back in 1758 when it was part of the Austrian Empire, his name was
Wolfgangus Joannes Josephus Maria Mucha and he was an engineer. He was
contacted by a man named Casado de Torres while he was working in Vienna to
work in northern Spain at the service of the Spanis king. There he married
and had kids, but all (if not at least most) of his descendents then moved
to Mexico at the ends of the 1800s or early 1900s.
Wolfgang was the son of Joannes Franciscus Milicharus Mucha (also known as
Ivan Muha, 1733- 1795) and Marijana Čebulj (also found as Marianna Zebul,
1734-1782) both born and buried in Lokev.
Paternal grandson of Joannes Bapta. Mucha (b. 1684 Lokev) and a woman named
Maria Anna, i don't know her surname.
Maternal grandson of Paulus Zebul (wich aparentely was the way Čebulj was
written at the time, born in Laibach) and i don't know his wife's name.
The Mucha family (Joannes Bapta. Mucha's elder siblings and his parents) was
from Skocjan, near Divaca, also knowned as San Canziano.
Do you guys can point out who can help me out, if there's a board, or anyone
who knows about this region of Slovenia? or do you know if there's already
some research on this surnames?
Hope to hear from you really soon,
Besto of regards,
