Swiniary parish – 1827 Births (a selection)

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

  1. Kasper Rosinski
  2. Agnieszka Kuckowna (Kuc is probable root)
  3. Agnieszka Głosowna
  4. Agnieszka Gubalonka
  5. Agnieszka Fortunianka (Fortuna family name)
  6. Agnieszka Halastrzonka
  7. Maryanna Komarkowna

A note is due here. The names are in chronological order. Kasper being the first baby born in the parish in 1827. When I see clusters of names in a row, I think Polish Name day – Kasper is the 6th of January and Agnieszka is the 21st of January, so perhaps those are the approximate dates for these babies.

  1. Sbastyan Błaydo
  2. Antonina Giolewska
  3. Agata Ciostkowna
  4. Salomea Malinowska
  5. Maciej Wiziaszek
  6. Salomea Wybałowna
  7. Elzbeita Kuzonowna
  8. Maciej Kramarz
  9. Jozef Błaszczyk
  10. Maciej Misior
  11. Maciej Kawalski
  12. Maciej Juszczyk
  13. Jozef Dudek
  14. ? Kiszczanka
  15. Kazimierz Juszczyk

… It continues on from there. This is from an index which was not ordered, except by Akt # (i.e. 1, 2, 3, …). Implicitly that is chronological.  By the way, that flurry of Maciej’s probably occurred around the name day of February 24th. In Stanczyk’s family name day was not utilized to any great consistency. But this parish seems to have some tradition of naming babies by the name day.

Stanczyk has indexes from about 1826-1852. I found my great-grandfather’s first wife’s birth record in 1833. In fact, the microfilm had the Latin Box data (usually copies in Russian-Poland partition) and the Polish Paragraph form for the same years, so I could get the data in both forms. This era uses house numbers (pod numerum) which I have found useful again. My ancestor, Julianna Kordos, was born to her father from his 2nd wife. I see her father having babies with wife #1, then when Julianna and her siblings are born it is to wife #2. Julianna’s father is Adalbertus (Latin form) Kordos and I knew it was him because of the house number was common across wives. So keep your eyes open for other clues sometimes they can provide yet another reason to accept the church record as your ancestor.
