Claudio Daniel Zivic has been a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) since 2007. He is only the second Argentine general authority in LDS Church history.
Born in Buenos Aires the son of Sergio Jorge and Eleonora Zalewski Zivic to a Latter-day Saint family, Zivic is a life-long Mormon, which is not common for LDS Church members in South America born before 1950. Zivic's maternal grandmother was a Polish Jew and his paternal grandfather a German soldier who both immigrated to Argentina after World War I. His Polish grandmother and his mother were both baptized when Zivic's mother was 12 years old.
Zivic is married to Dina Noemi Alvarez, who attended the same church branch as Zivic in Argentina as a child.Church News, May 12, 2007. Both were baptized in the chapel in Liniers, the oldest in South America and the only one equipped with a baptismal font at the time. Dina's family moved to the United States when she was nine. When she was twelve, her father was called as a construction missionary and sent to Chile. After three years on this mission the family returned to Argentina and again attended the same church congregation as Zivic.
