Post Posted: 5 Days ago at 7:09 pm      Post subject: Help deciphering a surname
Reply with quote

Can I get an opinion or two on a surname which I'm having trouble reading?

I'm trying to determine the surname for Helena. She is listed just after Antonii Bochenski

Hi,
Looking at the way the "ch" in the middle of Bochenski is written, I see a "ch" in her name as well. To my eye, I see: Werchratska which I would prefer to see spelled as Werchracka (the Polish -cka ending sounds just like -tska sounds).

Hi again,

Regarding Werchracki, it is a very rare surname. Here is a representation of where it is found in recent times:
http://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Werchracki


Also, there are a few records on Geneteka for this surname (and similar spelling):
1826 marriage of Grzegorz Werchratski (no scan included)

1766 marriage of Daniel Werchrocki, 1791 marriage of Marianna Werchracka, 1929 marriage of Stefan Werchracki, 1824 death of Florian Werchracki, 1928 death of Volod. Werchracki (some scans included)
http://geneteka.genealodzy.pl/index.php?op=gt&lang=pol&bdm=S&w=21uk&rid=S&search_lastname=Werchracki&search_name=&search_lastname2=&search_name2=&from_date=&to_date=&rpp1=&ordertable=

Hope this helps.
