Surname: Sebastian - Help to find ancestors plz

12 Mar 2007 /  #1
Hi! Thanks that u have already viewed this message. Well, I'm from Ukraine, and my name is Olga :) So I was told to find the roots in Poland. Surname: Shebastyan, but maybe it was slightly modified during years, so it can be Shebestjan, Sebastjan...however, the soundex shouldn't be changed. Can you help me to find if there are some ancestors in Poland? Thank you very much :)

P.S. if u can help in my search, feel free to ask me additional questions about this :)

ahh sweet brother, this one I am lost on. there is no U.S. sources that would help
and im not familar with many sources in Europe. Wroclaw would be better choice
at the moment :)

Ps. I wish I could :)

Sebastian i a name.... i couldn't find this word as a surname.

That is what I was thinking too, more of a first name -taken as last name, I never
seen a polish name even not have a ending. maybe in early early records before
1800's but even then I think this name was taken as last name and it was something
else. I don't know, someone has to have some kind of resources to help out?

Well, maybe better to search something like Shebeshtyan? Because it's according to the soundex too. Or Sebashtian? How do you think? Thanks.
