Philip,

Re: http://polishorigins.com/forum/files/j_surname_143.png

The first line is easy, “Iwona Mich” – Mich can be the beginning of her last name.
The second is more difficult, could be “z Iwanoskich” - the first letter have been adjusted on the fly by the scribe, probably to unstick it from the line above or below, or both, or something else. It is too small to state.
In handwritten Polish, the letter Z with stroke, Ƶ, have been used as Z, and it is still by some people (my father used it when signing with his given name).
The first letter of the second line may appear as Ƶ too.

Anyway, the second line is the last name, while the first line is a given name. I do not think it is the same person.

Best,
Elzbieta

Elzbieta,

as I wrote in the first post, they are both the same signature, just from two different certificates that i cut, copied and pasted together trying to figure out from a paragon between them, what was the right spelling of this surname.
Anyway I also think it's Iwanowski... But yeah it's difficult to say it.
