Polish & Prussian/German town name cross-reference.


Fonferek    
27 Dec 2018  #61
My great grandfather and his family came from Pianowka. The spelling they used in the US was Fonferek but on both certificates it was spelled Fąferek. Does sound Polish. I believe it could be a variant of the Dutch name Van Varick. Also have a Y-DNA match with Scotland. Found out the Scots came to Poland between 1500s and 1700s.

My grandfather was from Pognyszn, Poland in the early 1900's. I cannot find this town on a map anywhere! Can someone please tell me how to locate this town?

Try Knyszyn, a town in northern Poland.. Po means on or after (with a sense of 'a little after' if you're talking about a place)..

I am always very sad when think of old Prussians. They were such a good Serbs in their glorious time, prior to being subjugated and germanized. Oh, what a great great Sarmats were they. I mourn for them. Let ancestors forgive them, to those who survived to live in shame.

Man, ancient name for Baltic sea was `Serbian ocean`. What you think what was name of all people that lived on land that surrounded that sea? Poles themselves are Serbs by their meta-ethnicity. Have that in their legends. Sarmats is foreign form of Serb name.

Many are Serbians and that even don`t know that. Its about ethnicity. Nation names came later.

I recently found a photo with the caption on back "the town they lived in, Schoenflichs". Could have been "Schoen*lic*s"? Other communities I find on documents are Richtohoffe, Leopoldsberg, Altgrabr, Any suggestions on finding these communities? Danzig?Gdansk was listed too, but that one was easy. I will also go back over past postings in case something will help.

This is a wonderful site. I have learned so much.

Altgrabau Could be Grabowo near Koscierzyna.

leopoldsberg was the German name of Stare Grabowo - a few km from the Grabowo above

This site is pretty useful for that kind of thing

Note there are quite a few Grabowo s in Poland but that is the closest one to Gdańsk

Ah, Prussians. Old one, previous then these modern moronic ones. They were artists in culture and warfare, in everything. Svetovid granted them with plenty talents. Then came Romans and ruined them, distorted their vision. Spread sickness of romanization what culminated in germanization.

RiP to ancestors polluted by Czarnybog.

Can anyone identify the town in Poland that would have sounded like Schwesna?

When Germany collapse complete eastern Germany should be attached to Poland, except for regions that will form Lusatia. Lusatia should be formed as independant state. Western Germany forget. It will go freak and will join in Magna France.
