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.) )
