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

That is correct. There were three szlachta (gentry) lines amongst the bearers of the Murawski surname: Dąbrowa, Korab and Łuk. PM me for more info.

Any information on the Skrodzki family? Four different "herbs" come up on the list.

@Wnuk Antoniego

A "herb" only has meaning in the context of a particular ancestor. They have no meaning today, and haven't had any for a long, long time. If you are able to trace your family tree back to the 1700s, then you would be able to find out what, if any, herb a particular ancestor had. How far have you been able to trace back your family tree?

Thank you for the reply. Yes, I realize the herbs don't really mean anything anymore. So far I've researched back to the late 18th century - but the research is ongoing!

This period valid for finding a herb (coat of arms).

If you have indeed identified ancestors from the late 1700s, then the only way to connect them with any herb is to find documents that explicitly connect them to a herb. Without documented evidence, there is no way to determine whether a person belonged to a particular herb or not.

Looking to find out the family coat of arms for the family karakuszka

There probably isn't one. Do you have any evidence that any of your ancestors of that surname were nobles? Or even Polish in the 18th century?

The name is apparently ultimately Ruthenian (Ukrainian) in origin, and is derived from the Turkish word "karak", which means a type of "minor leader or official". The name is used by a very small number (27) of modern Poles, both in that spelling and in the more Polonified spelling of Karakoszko. However, they are almost certainly the descendants of Ruthenians who had become Polonified at some point in time. The current day Poles with that surname live near Jarosław in southeastern Poland, not far from the Ukrainian border. My guess is that there are also people with that surname in what is now the Ukraine.

Probably Zakrzowski. A very rare surname, with only 27 people with that name in the country. that belongs to a single family that originated and still lives predominantly in or near Katowice in southern Poland.
