The author indicated the possibility of several Croats' having sailed aboard Christopher Columbus' ships during the period of great discoveries, the hypotheses of the Croatan Indians' possible Croatian origin, and the hypothetical presence of Croats in the colony of Ebenezer, the U.S. State of Georgia. In this connection numerous sources were quoted. The author also mentioned links between Dubrovnik and America, warning that they had been only partly explored.
It was also stated that the period of our early migration had not been sufficiently studied, and that the period concerned would continue to be one of the research tasks of our migration science.
