Easy way to find out which Polish coat of arm/Clan you belong to.

Does anyone know the coat of arms or family crest for the last name Nasiadka. When I've asked about it before I was told that there would be none becasue it is a "run away" name. However, does anyone know about this name or what clan it may ave desended from?

NASIADKA: root-word nasiadać (said of a bird to hatch, brood. sit on eggs to incubate them); probably a topo tag from the village of Nasiadki in Mazowsze. No Nasiadka was ever recorded as having held membership in a szlachta clan which would have entitled him to use its coat of arms.

The legend surrounding the emergence of the Szaława clan and heraldic device goes as follows. In around 988 AD, Vladimir the Great, Prince of Kievan Rus' (now Ukraine), wanted to adopt Orthodox Christianity and sent envoys ot Byzantium to bring back the new faith. When they returned, the Pagan Russians began ridiculing the new religion, so one of the envoys challenged three pagan warriors to a three-against-one duel. He stood at the center of a circle and hacked all three of them to pieces. The Szaława coat of arms commemorates that combat with a circle and three inward-pointing cavalier's crosses. The Szaława coat of arms is shared by the nobles lines of 40 Polish gentry families with surnames ranging from Alkiewicz to Wigura.

Looks like mine is Rawa, but the exact name of Kubisz isn't on the list of families associated with the clan. However, this is the clan that came up on the site listed above when I put that surname in. I also don't understand Polish diminutives well enough to determine if Kubisz might simply be a diminutive of one of the official names listed.

According to Taduesz Gajl's armorial, the most authoritative and updated available, no coat of arms accompanies the Kubisz surname. There were nobles amongst the bearers of such similar names including Kibicki, Kubiński and Kubiczek.

So what does it mean for the Kubisz surname?

surname Bilinski,
first name Zygmunt

It means that no Kubisz ever made it into the ranks of the Polish gentry. Only about 10% of Old Polish society was "well born", the remaining 90% were commoners.

Can you please tell which coat of arm Tomaski belongs to. I know the name was shorten years ago
Polonius3 988 | 11,713

It all depends what is was shortened from. Here are some fo the Tomasz-derived surnames which had gentry lines amongst their bearers entitled to use the following coats of arms:

TOMASZEWICZ: £abędĽ, Ogończyk
TOMASZEWSKI: Bończa, Krupka
TOMASZOWSKI: Bończa, Radwan
TOMCZYCKI: Jastrzębiec
TOMECKI: Nowina
TOMICKI: Drya, £odzia, Prus III
TOMIKOWSKI: Prus III
TOMUSKI: Poraj

Would anyone know the origins of "Seroskie" would it be particular to a certain part of Poland
Polonius3 988 | 11,713

"Seroskie"

No such Polish surname. It must be misspelt. Could it be Serocki? If so, that's a surname of toponymic origin traceable to the village of Serock.

We have members of our family that spell it Seroski- possibly could have been Serocki and got changed when they moved to US. Also seen it as Seroskia? Thank You, will look into the village of Serock

could anyone help me with the surname kinjerski?
Polonius3 988 | 11,713    
21 Dec 2015  #46

kinjerski

No-one in Poland spells their name that way. But the Kinierski surname once existed, in fact there was a noble line amongst its bearers. For more info please contact: research60@gmail.com
Piekos

can anyone tell me what coat of arms belongs to Piekos or Pięko¶?
Polonius3 988 | 11,713    
31 Jan 2016  #48

Sorry, but there is no record of any Piekos, Piękos or Pienkos ever being admitted into a szlachta clan which would have entitled him to use their heraldic device.
Piekos    
31 Jan 2016  #49

not even Pięko¶
Polonius3 988 | 11,713    
1 Feb 2016  #50

Sorry, not even. In its alphabetical index Gajl's armorial, the most complete and authoritative so far, lists PIĘDZISZOWSKI and PIĘTA with nothing in between.
Piekos

okay and one more question what about Zawislak
Polonius3 988 | 11,713    
2 Feb 2016  #52

Zawislak

Sorry, struck out again. No Zawi¶ak ever made it into the ranks of the szlachta, but a possible descendant named Zawisłowski (which could mean "son of Zawi¶lak") did have bearers belonging to the ¦lepowron clan.

Zawi¶ak

Sorry for typo -- it should read Zawi¶lak (roughly pronounced:
za-VEESH-lahk).

What is the history behind the Kijek coat of arms? The coat of arms is a red shield with a yellow cross and yellow semi-circle on it. The shield is surrounded by red and yellow "finery." Above the shield is a grey breastplate with a yellow necklace hanging on it. Above the breastplate is what appears to be a crown. Sitting on top of the crown is a raven with a ring hanging from its mouth.

Also, this may be a town coat of arms.

I am new to this forum. I've recently started investigating my great Grandfathers origins in Poland. The older members of the family were never much for sharing any information about where they came from. They were tight lipped and didn't talk about much.

I've looked up his name - Koprowski and it seems to be connected to these two crests. Alabanda, and Korczak. I would love to know more about this name in Poland, I just have so little to go on. They integrated completely and later altered the spelling of the name after coming to Canada and said very little about history.

Trying to find out what clan Weglarz is associated with. I have checked a list of Polish clans with the family names attached to them, but didnt find this name. Could it be some kind of alternate spelling?
