Anyone else?
My father is very serious about it. My son merely rolls his eyes.

My in-laws are probably Prus II... do I qualify as a subsidiary?

Yes. Technically, we're Prus II as well, but if you listen to my father you'd think that the "merger" did not sit well the original, hence the distinction.

PRUS I aka PÓ£TORA KRZYŻA: Prus (Prussian), also known as Półtora Krzyża (Cross-and-a-Half), depicting a white cross on a red shield with an extra half-bar protruding on the right, was said to have originated when three pagan Prussian warriors converted to Christianity and were awarded the coat of arms by the Polish king. There are other Prus crests numbered II and III which differ from Prus I.

PRUS II: During the reign of King Casimir the Renewer (1034-1958), his brave commander using the Prus I coat of arms successfully defeated the self-styled Prince Masław (Miecław) who had allied himself with the pagan Pomeranians and Jadvingians to attack the Polish kingdom. As his reward, the commander married Masław’s daughter and added the latter’s twin-scythe or twin-ploughshare emblem to his own Cross-and-a-Half coat of arms which became known as Prus II.

Hello, my family's sure names Baldowski was listed in herb prus 1 and I'm really confused cause I'm from Belarus but I know that I have relatives in Poland so does that mean I have polish or Prussian ancestry?

If you look at Kaczyński and love him, then no.
