My father, who since passed away, always insisted that his family came from royalty -- that they were the equivalent of dukes and duchesses. I was taught that the 'ski' in Romanowski meant son of Romanov. I've always been interested to find out if what he said was actually true.
Well, there was/is a noble family of this name in Poland. It originally came from Red Ruthenia (Ruś Czerwona).
I know that they left Russian controlled Poland,
Do you know what city/town/village exactly?
whereas, my mother's parents immigrated from Austrian controlled Poland (Sarna, Cichon).
Sarna and Cichon were their surnames?
