    His father’s Croatian ancestry is traceable back hundreds of years on geni. Croatian people didn’t just all change their last names from Italian ones.

    If it can help, Jaime Font Binotto’s mother was the daughter of Antonio Binotto Acespini and Evarista Henriquez Sandoval.

    This makes Boric 1/16 Italian, though his Dalmatian ancestors may have some Italian ancestry as well.
