Project Terra Adriatica
Identify, Validate & Monetize
Your Ancestral Right to Croatian Land
Help Croatia to return billions of
square meters of land to productivity
Welcome to Project Terra Adriatica!
As a team, we are passionate about achieving our mission to return produc ti vity to vast tracks of
unclaimed, ancestral land in the Republic of Croatia – land which is currently lying economically dormant
due to issues with establishing legal title.
In doing so, we will unlock tens of billions of euros in latent value for its rightful owners, and by extension
the Croatian economy which will benefit from the legitimate development and proper use of that land.
As such, our mission represents the single most effective program through which members of the
Croatian diaspora can help their motherland, while at the same time generating value for themselves.
To achieve this, we’ve developed a product called Locksmith. Locksmith facilitates the generation of
value from the sale of affected land at no upfront cost, or financial risk to you.
If you are of Croatian descent, you may have a valid claim without knowing it. We want to help you find
out. If you do, then congratulations! You are not only a part of the solution but also a potential candidate
for our Pilot Project to address a target 300 hectares of affected land.
This booklet outlines the issue at hand and how we can work together to solve it. Links to more detailed
explanations and additional resources are provided in the last chapter.
By working with us to identify, establish and monetize your rightful, ancestral claim to land, you will be
at the forefront of a movement that ultimately has the potential to transform the fortunes of Croatia
and its people.
I hope that this marks the beginning of a highly productive relationship. We look forward to working with
you to solve one of the most pressing problems that our country faces today.

Co-founder, Terra Adriatica
Successive waves of emigration, communist
rule and a history of conflict has resulted in at
least 10% of all Croatian land lying economically
dormant, due to missing, incomplete or outdated
land registry records.
This unclaimed land represents anywhere
between €5billion and €10billion in lost value for
its potential owners, such as you, as well as many
times that in lost productivity for the Croatian
An estimated 3.2m global citizens of Croatian
descent with a potential share in this claim hold
the key to resolving this issue - often without
even knowing it.
Those who are aware of a claim are rarely able
to justify the signifi cant cost and time required to
navigate the highly complex process of establishing
it in law.
Terra Adriatica enables any
individual of Croatian descent to
identify, establish and ultimately
monetize their ancestral claim to
land at no upfront cost, or risk while
delivering 90% of the net proceeds
achieved at sale.
By entering into a “Locksmith”
agreement, you commit upfront
to selling the land we identify and
establish as yours. This commitment
enables us to then secure an
external investor willing to fund the
process, so you don’t have to.
Following a sale, the investor
recoups their outlay, plus
a small return. The net
proceeds are then split 90%
to you and 10% to Terra
Adriatica as a commission
for facilitating the service.
The land is freed up for
and use to the benefit of
local communities and
the Croatian economy as
Our mantra is that we act
at all times on behalf of
you, as the seller of land.
Our entire process ensures
full alignment between
all parties, at all times, in
achieving the highest price
for the land at sale.
How it works
We use specific technology to compare the family tree data you provide
with often imperfect records held in Croatia’s land registries.
By connecting tens of millions of data records, we create an initial
picture as to what potential rights you may have to land. We provide
this initial assessment via a free report.
If you are happy for us to invest resources to further refine this list
and ultimately to sell any land to which we can prove you have a
valid claim, then we enter into a Locksmith Agreement.
To provide this service at zero upfront cost to you, we find investors
willing to lend the funds at their financial risk.
If and when we are successful and the land is sold, the investor
gets their money back plus interest. The rest is then split 90% to
you and 10% to Terra Adriatica.

Your journey starts by registering an account with us
Once you fill out your family tree, we will provide you
with an initial report (at no cost) on the possible land
matches we find.
We then ask that you read our Locksmith Explained
document - a plain language, yet comprehensive
overview of how the Locksmith process works.
If, and only if, you feel that Locksmith
right for you, and you would like to join
our Pilot Project, we enter into an
agreement and start the process.
Join Our Pilot Project
We are currently assessing land for inclusion within our Pilot Project. If you do decide to
enter into a Locksmith Agreement with us, then we will examine the land we identify on
your behalf for consideration.
In the meantime, we encourage you to read through the following documents:
This document will give you a
detailed overview of the Locksmith
process and the rationale behind it.
It has been written in clear language
in order to provide you with all the
information you will need in order
to be able to deterine whether
Locksmith is right for you.
A Sample Free Report
This sample report will show you
how, from using the informaiton
you provide in your faily tree,
we are able to provide an initial
assessment as to what land your
family may lay claim.
It is the first step in your Journey
with TA. If you enter into a Locksmith
Agreement, we will then work
to refine and assess these results.
If at any time, you have a question, or feel that any of our documentation
is unclear, then please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
