help trying to guess the language

Hi All!!!


I was cleaning my grandparents old documents, and I've found a letter from a nephew. It's a really old letter sent from somewhere in Europe. But I cant tell which language is it written in :(


I dont know how to put an image here (I dont think it is allowed). But I uploaded here:


If anyone can help me with this first step, maybe I can start trying to see what it says!


Thanks everyone!!

I'm no expert on Slavic languages, but it looks like some sort of Yugoslavian, maybe Bosnian.

I am a historian and can read old writing so why not scan one letter and let me have a look at it?

Thanks Phil!!

yes, my family comes from what was Yugoslavia. But I know they used to change languages during wars, so I'm not sure in which of them it may be written in. I dont know if it is still used today like it is in the letter! :S
