The contents of this website are translations / transcriptions from the vital records of Hrastovac, also known as Eichendorf, which is a village presently situated in Croatia southwest of Daruvar, on a road that connects the two towns of Uljanik and Garesnica.

Originals for these records are housed in Bjelovar, Croatia and a microfilm, number 2065192 (items 9-11), of this material is available through the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah. Births are recorded from not only Hrastovac but also surrounding communities. The confirmation records are extensive, including the name of the confirmand's parents and the birth date and place of origin of the individual. For the years 1897-1902, the confirmands of Kapitanovopolje are included in the records. Marriage records are contained in 3 sections, depending on the format of the original documents. Word lists are attached to the end of the segments of the marriage entries to aid in the translation of the transcription. Birth records are contained in 3 sections - see the relevant dates below.
