G'day Dave

Thanks for the 'Halka' translations most helpful.

I have another 2 baptisms for translations please when time permits - another Halka record in 1754 from Rychnow parish and a Krawczyk record from Wrząca Wielka parish. I've only included the cropped records and if required can provide the full page.

Cheers
Ted


Hi Ted,

Here are the two B&B records.

Józef & Franciszek (Twins):

#4 Rychnów
On the 15th day (the month would be found earlier on the page) I, the same who is above, baptized two sons, twins, of the legitimate marriage of the industrious Roch, a cottager, and of Maryanna. The name of one was Józef, whose sponsors were Marcin Chałka and Lucja Dąbowska, (and) of the other Franciszek, whose sposors were Bartłomiej, a servant of the parish priest and Agnieszka Sołtynka*, all from the village of Rychnów.

Note; *Sołtynka: the name indicates that her father was a soltys, a village adninistrator.


B&B of Marcelli (a male child)

Kiełczewo Smużme. On the 25th day of February I baptized an infant by the name of Marceli, the son of the of the legitimate marriage of the industrious Norbert and Maryanna whose sponsors were the industrious Stanisław and Rozalia, both from Kiełczewo Smużme.

A couple of weeks ago you helped me solve my roadblock of not being able to locate my 3xGGF's death record - it should have been under Andrzej Mackowski but was recorded as Andrzej Maciaszek. While I was looking for another 3xGGF's marriage record (Ignacy Chalka) I came across the attached marriage record which appears to be possible Andrzej's brother (Kasper) marriage record - it appears that Kasper was a widower aged over 60(?) and his wife a widow over 45(?). It is the last record on the 29 January 1804 - record 2.

Hopefully it may contain some clues.

Cheers
Ted


Hi Ted,

Outside of the basic facts about the couple and the witnesses the majority of the entry deals with the legalities, showing that all the legal requirements were observes, as was typical for entries of this time and place.

The translation follows.

Dave

Left Margin: 29 January #2
Body of Entry: Rychnów. In the same year, after the three banns had been promulgated on individual Sundays and since no impediment had been detected, the same who is above ratified the marriage between Kacper Maciaszek, a widower, and Franciszka Krawczykowna, a widow, in the presence of Walenty Walaszek, Andrzej Jachimiak, Andrzej Maciaszek and their spouses and other trustworthy witnesses.

Col. 7: a widower 60 years of age; a widow 45 years of age: Checked

I have located the death record for Kacper Maciaszak, but I don't think it contains much valuable information and just states he was buried in the cemetery. I think it basically says he died (unable to obtain the day due to the tight binding) and he was 58yo. That would be suitable for Kacper to be Andrzej's older brother but I can't confirm with a birth record as it would be 2 years before the available records on line. It looks like he died of Dysentery (?) - last column. Hopefully the marriage record may shed some light.

Can you please translate.

Cheers
Ted


Hi Ted,

You dug out most of the info from the entry and you are correct that it does not contain much valuable information. Anyway, the translation follows.

Dave

Death of Kacper Maciaszek

Left Margin: February 2
Body of Entry: Rychnów. In the year as above after having been rightly fortified by all the Sacraments* Kacper Maciaszek, 58 years of age, died of dysentery (&) was buried towards the north (in the cemetery).

Note: *omnibus Sacramentis/by all the Sacraments: Confession, Communion, and the Anointing (Extreme Unction). Collectively these three were commonly known as the Last Rites.

Hi blue,

You did very well. Most of your errors involve incorrect transcriptions. Two related words which seem to cause difficulties are the noun mors, mortis, f. death and mortuus, mortui, the deceased, which is the Perfect Participle of the Deponent verb morior, mori, mortuum, to die. Deponent verbs “lay aside” their active voice forms and use passive voice forms with an active meaning. Since participles are verbal adjectives, like other adjectives, they can be used as substantives, which is the case here where mortuus des not just mean “dead” but is used as a noun, “the deceased”.

A note about the Polish Alphabet...The Polish Alphabet uses the Roman/Latin Alphabet. However, the letters q, v and x are not found in pure Polish words. Polish adds letters to the Roman/Latin Alphabet by the use of diacritical marks. Letters with diacritical marks are separate and distinct letters from the corresponding letter without a diacritical mark (e.g. o & ó, n & ń, z & ż are all separate and distinct letters which have their own pronunciation). A correct translation should include the diacritical marks. There are several ways to insert letters with diacritical marks without using a Polish keyboard. The simplest methods are to insert characters in whatever word program one is using or to use the windows character map or to open the character viewer in Mac.

The corrections follow.

Dave

Elizabeth/Elżbieta Stefańska


Hi Dave. Thanks for your corrections and all your advice. I really do appreciate it.

Can I please also ask you about the surname of Elżbieta Stefańska? In the other records I have about Elżbieta, her maiden surname is recorded as various versions of Oszczeda / Osczenda / Oscenda / Elstenda.

I had assumed that Oszczeda / Osczenda / Oscenda are Polish versions, and that Elstenda is possibly a German variation of her name.

Is there any chance that Stefańska does translate to Oszczeda / Osczenda / Oscenda / Elstenda?

Hi Dave.

Can you please help me with the occupation of Adalbert Grzonka in the birth record for his daughter Maria? I think I can read everything except Adalbert's occupation.

To me, it looks something like custos an licus ?

Hi Dave,
Thank you for the translation.
According to the baptism record the person being baptized is Jozef Karol or Joseph Charles. It shows the father as Jozef Olszewski... This baptism record should be FOR Jozef Olszewski so that is a little confusing. I will have to do more digging on baptismal records during that time period.
Thank you again for the translation.

Hi blue,

Stefańska is not another version/translation of Oszczęda/Osczenda/Oscenda. (The Polish letter ę is close enough in sound to the letters “en” that depending on the clarity of diction one sometimes is substituted for the other.) According to William F. Hoffman’s Polish Surnames: Origins and Meanings Oszczęda is derived from the verb osczędzać (to live frugally, to save money). In 1998 there were 352 individuals living in Poland who had the surname Oszczęda. Stefański comes from the given name Stefan (Stephen) so I don’t see any connection between the two surnames. Perhaps Michael could shed light on whether or not Elstenda is a German surname with a similar meaning to Oszczęda. Another consideration regarding the surname being entered as Stefańska is the informant—the sister of the deceased child. How old was Marianna at the time. Her age may be an indication of the reliability of her knowledge of her mother’s maiden name.

Maiden names of women can be somewhat less than reliable because it was not primary source/first hand information. The mother was usually not present for the baptism of her children and her maiden name was supplied by either her husband or the sponsors aka godparents. More often than not the mother was not the informant for the death of her children. (Of the 9 death records on the page you posted the mother was the informant twice, the father six times and a sister once.

Hands down the most reliable info about a woman’s maiden name is found in the marriage record where she herself provides that information.

Hoffman’s book was published by the Polish Genealogical Society of America https://pgsa.org/ If you want to purchase a copy, it is available on Amazon but also at a lesser price in the PGSA store. Currently the print version is not in stock but the electronic version is available on CD.

All the best,

Dave

Hi again,

Wojciech/Adalbert’s occupation is custos aulicus which means “guard/custodian of the manor. The male sponsor’s occupation is villicus in aula which means “steward/overseer in the manor”. Aulicus is an adjective from the noun aula. Aula, aulae, f. is a word which comes from the Latin of antiquity. Originally it meant the forecourt of a Greek house and later took on the meaning of an inner court and a hall and a palace. In Post Classical Latin it was used to refer to a dwelling/habitation, a hall (usually of the wealthy). In the academic world of schools and universities it was used for a lecture hall or classroom. In Post Medieval Latin its meaning varied according to the place and the time. In records such as this it was used for a manor and/or a manor house. The Polish translation is dwór. According to the Słownik geograficzny (Volume XII, pages 547-548) http://dir.icm.edu.pl/pl/Slownik_geograficzny/Tom_XII/548 Trzcinica was both a village and a manorial estate. During the late 19th Century the village had 77 houses and a population of 596 (504 Catholics, 85 Protestants and 7 Jews). The manorial estate had 7 houses with 104 inhabitants (56 Catholics and 52 Protestants).

I hope the above answers your question.

Dave

To me, it looks something like custos an licus ?

Hi,

Damage to the certificate makes a few names difficult to read with certainty...especially surnames which, of course, are not in Latin. It appears that the way in which the certificate was stored caused some of the handwritten and the printed text to transfer as a reverse/mirror image on to the document. A deliberate change to the doc is the number 725 which is superimposed over the Latin word for nine hundredth—nongentesimus. That number is obviously not part of the original document. A bit of background info...the lines in the background were a security measure designed to prevent changes to the date and year of birth. Over the years I have been asked to translate a few certificates where rhat data had been attempted to be changed by changing the Arabic numerals. Ah, but busted and disgusted...not changing the Latin longhand made the forgery obvious. Obviously not the case here.

On a different topic...If you haven’t seen this doc, here is a link to Peter & Sophia’s civil marriage license and return https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:939K-BVDG-1?i=472&cc=1614804&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AZ8MB-K1W2 This doc gives Piotr/Peter’s parents names as Wawrzyniec/Lawrence Hreben and Anna Sanko which would help to determine whether any of the Hreben individuals Monika found are his siblings.

And another topic...when you are requesting a translation it is much better to post the request in the thread for the language in which the doc is written rather than as a new topic. The only reason that I saw this request was because it ended up next to the Latin thread. The same advice would hold true for the Russian doc you posted. Marcel is more likely to see your request in the Russian thread than as a new topic which can easily get lost in the shuffle.

The translation follows.

Wishing you success,

Dave

Hi Dave. Thanks for the information about Elźbieta's surname. I had a look at the informant, Marianna, and she was 19 years old and the half-sister of Joseph, so it does seem reasonable that Marianna may not have known the surname of her step-mother Elźbieta.

I also had a look at the website for Hoffman's book, and I became distracted while looking at all the resources on that website - it is fantastic.
