In most of his early paperwork his name is listed as Silvester Fortin. Also, he claims many places as his birthplace... such as Holland and Italy. Two documents indicate Austria. There is a photo of him in his Fireman's uniform which an expert has told me is Austrian. However, the town he was from is now located in Slovenia and is called Črna na Koroškem. DNA testing on my part does indicate that my male line is from Slovenia. His last place of residence on some of his paperwork is listed as Prävali and is now known as Prevalje in Slovenia.
