Things Found Whilst Searching For Other Things — #Genealogy #History #Obit #KingJanIIISobieski #Meme

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

Stanczyk ‘s favorite meme is Things Found Whilst Searching For Other Things .

Today’s blog may be my greatest unexpected find. This day (26-Mar-2017), I found the obituary of King Jan III Sobieski (King of Poland & Lithuania – The Commonwealth).

I was searching Latin church book entries for:

« alias »,« seu »,« vel », « genantt »,« zwany »

But what I found instead  in 1696 in Świniary parish book astounded me. It was by far the longest latin entry I ever found in parish books… then I looked at the top of the page, “Obitu Joannis III Regis Polonii 1696″ !  My latin being somewhat limited, I scanned the obituary of Jan III King of Poland until I could pull the obligatory genealogical data from the 3-4th lines from the bottom: “30 June 1696” [sic actual death date, 17-June-1696].

If my research/understanding is correct, the obituary was written by Jan de Małachowice (Małachowski), the Bishop of Kraków.

 
Post Scriptum:

The Funeral of Jan III Sobieski, King of Poland …

The Funeral of King Jan III

Binging on Byatt — #Books

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

Stanczyk  is binge reading Dame A.S. Byatt‘s books. This jester neglected reading Chabon & Byatt for far too long and I am remedying those omissions before the weather gets too nice.

 

By my birthday I will have read a dozen books in 2017.

Polish Surnames & Their Evolution — #Genealogy #Poland

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

Forysiowa “seu” Pokorzonka


As this jester read earlier in the week in a European journal about an article on family names and how they change. I knew I had to blog about this name topic. 

Stanczyk wants you to know that when you read the church records, particularly the Latin paragraph form (prior to 1800) you need to look for these clues … these key words that signal name evolution:

 « alias », « seu », « vel », « genantt »,« zwany »

(‘other’, ‘or’, ‘or’ (latin), ‘called’ (ger.), ‘called’ (pol.) )
