British Royal Family Tree — #Genealogy, #Royal, #British

Stanczyk muses on the notion, does the British Royal Family need  a court jester ?   Perhaps, Harry would not want a competitor. Did you notice that the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge had a baby by any chance ? The Internet and CATV seems to have invested some bandwidth to this little story.

Here is the family tree from King George VI, through his daughter, HRH Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles (of Wales), Prince William (of Cambridge) and the latest addition, Prince George Alexander Louis.

Did you know that the “royals” get to pick their last name ? If you look closely at the tree you will see a variety of last names. We still do not know the new prince’s last name. His father Prince William’s name is at present, William Wales. So the new prince could be George Cambridge (or Windsor or Tudor or Mountbatten or Wales etc.). We are still waiting on the Duke & Duchess for the full name. By the way, I notice only three given names. I believe there may yet be a fourth  given name as well as the surname. I also do not think he can be Prince … of Cambridge, since that is his father. Is it not true that each prince must have their own principality?

By the way, the baby prince might not be King George VII. The young prince’s great-great grandfather became George VI at coronation. King George VI ‘s  birth name was:  Albert Frederick Arthur George. So George was his fourth given name. Might the baby be King Louis ?  That name seems to be a bit too French for the Britains to accept.

Royal Genealogy – so many traditional formalities. Just Fascinating.

Do any of you, my regal readers, have any Polish Royal Blood in your family tree? Any Szlachta out there?

Email me this poor jester (without a court) !

Pacanow 1875-1908 Index

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

St. Martin -  Pacanow Church about 1918

St. Martin – Pacanow Church about 1918

Stanczyk, has been sifting through the Index created on genealodzy.pl in their Geneszukacz database. Alright, only the Births Index, so far.

I see they have a total of nearly 7,300 people from those years (1875-1908) in their Birth Index. From Adam … Żyp . There were 58 ELIASZ in their index.Notice they used ELIASZ and not ELIJASZ. I found that interesting. They removed ‘J’ when they produced the index. Was that an error? Or was the indexer an expert? Because, in my heart of hearts, I believe the name (at least back to 1690) was ELIASZ.

It was only since 1869 when the Russian Empire forced Poland to keep records in Russian (Cyrillic) that the ‘J’ appeared from the Russian character ‘я’ (Ya) that ELIASZ became элияшъ .  элияшъ is transliterated in a Latin alphabet as ‘Elijasz’.

I only wanted to mention this as while I believe the translated properly produced the index with respect to ELIASZ; You will need to realize that finding the record in Russian/Cyrillic, you will need to look for a different translation (i.e. ELIJASZ/элияшъ) in the indexes and the actual church records.

So now I have an index of ELIASZ born in Pacanow in the years 1875-1908. Now what? I compared the list of 58 with what I already had/knew. I saw an overlap of 22 people. So I have 36 new ELIASZ to resolve and add into the family tree. My options are:

  1. Write to Pacanow parish and request specific records (since I have year, Akt#),  
  2. Write to Polish National Archive (again with detailed info),
  3. Hire a genealogist in Poland,
  4. Go on a genealogical tour to Poland.

The year range 1875-1908 is not completely in LDS microfilm. Although 1875-1884 is in LDS MF #’s:

1192351 Item 10,    1192352 Items 1-2,   1807621 Items 8-11,    1807622 Items 1-3

So doing research in a local Family History Center or at the Family History Library (Salt Lake) is not an option for the remaining 36. So I now have better options for remote research.

My List of 58 ELIASZ.
