I have managed to have another quick look at the list of the arms offered by the Croatian Heritage web-site - Family Coat of Arms section. It is quite amazing (even astonishing!) that you have managed to make so many more “mistakes” of the same nature as the one mentioned in my previous letter to you!
Namely, here are the surnames of the Serbian Nobility that I have found in your list at the very first glimpse (there could be more):
Adamovich, Andrejovich, Avakumovich, Baich, Bakic, Bibich, Cernojevich, Cokich, Davidovich, Delivuk, Demelich, Dinjicich, Gvozdanovich, Horvat, llich, Isakovich, Jagodich, Jaksich, Jankovich, Jovanovich, Jovich, Jugovich, Karakasevich, Kastriotich, Knezevich, Kobilich, Koich, Kotromanovich, Ljubibratich, Maljevac, Mamula, Mandich, Markovich, Mihalovich, Mikovich, Milenkovich, Milutinovich, Milinovich, Nemanjich, Nenadovich, Neorich, Nickisich, Nikolich, Novakovich, Oblacich, Ohmucevich, Ostoich, Parcetich, Pavlovich, Popovich, Preradovich, Rakitjevich, Radosevich, Rankovich, Rogulich, Rafailovich, Rajkovich, Rukavina, Runich, Samphirovich, Sarasevich, Simrak, Simeonovich, Stojcevich, Stratimirovich, Stanojevich, Stankovich, Siskovich, Smajevich, Smiglianich, Tomich, Tvartkovich, Vladislavich, Vlatkovich, Vojnovich, Vojvodich, Vukotich, Vukovich, Zivanovich, Zlatonosovich, Zorich…

I believe that all this is obvious enough even to those who know very little about Serbian or Croatian history and heraldry! It`s clear that all of the above-mentioned Aristocratic families and arms can only be a part of Serbian, and by no means – Croatian heritage! But, I must confess that the most notorious example here is that of the Nemanjich Family! The Holy Serbian Imperial Dynasty and their arms could, by no means, quailfy as a part of Croatian heritage! Or could they?
But, for now, as an obvious example of this your fraud, I offer you the arms of the family of Noble Milenkovich (granted by Emperor Ferdinand I Habsburg - 1.10.1835. in Wienna to Major Stefan Noble Milenkovich and his six sons). If you have just one little peak at those arms, you`ll be absolutely convinced of the undesputable ethnic origine of this Serbian Aristocratic family from Srem…
I rest my case!
