    3. As the mailing lists on Rootsweb will soon be going away (tomorrow!), I want to thank all of you for the years of sharing and learning that has occurred.  I don't post much but I will miss all the Rootsweb's genealogical mailing lists and the people on it. Thank you all for sharing your wisdom and knowledge with all of us. -- Michelle Chubenko "Our Ancestors -- Наші предки / Ukrainian Genealogy" https://www.facebook.com/groups/NashiPredky/ Co-Coordinator, Family History Group Ukrainian History & Education Center http://www.ukrhec.org/family-history-group -------- Forwarded Message -------- Subject: [ROOT-LO-ANNOUN] RootsWeb Mailing Lists Date: Tue, 07 Jan 2020 17:35:06 -0000 From: RootsWeb Administration <rwmailinglists@ancestry.com> Reply-To: Updates and Announcements for RootsWeb Mailing List Owners <rootsweb-listowners-announcements@rootsweb.com> To: rootsweb-listowners-announcements@rootsweb.com Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued.

    3. My 3rd great grandfather has an alias in his marriage record. Eventually, I realized his parents died when he was very young. Catholics deeply believed in the obligations of being godparents. They took the young ones into their own home, and in many instances, they took the godparents' name. I have seen where children were given to other relatives, which just notations about the last name change in church records. I had a cousin wife in the US take in his wife's younger sister's "mistake" into their home. They could not have children. She ended up being their only "child". Here's a very different situation. My cousin was 26 years ago with his father's brother adopted him. Turned out the uncle and his wife had not children, and they needed an heir. The brother signed to let his brother adopt that 26 year old man.

These knicknames sometimes follow a family for generations. For example, my grandparents emigrated from Poland in the early part of the 1900s.

When I visited my grandparents village in Poland, I was told by the parish priest that the family was known as "Hiszpan", when I researched my ancestors, I discovered that in 1730 my ancestor was a Spaniard who was a breeder of pure bred Arabian horses in Aranjuez Spain and he was brought to Poland by Count Krasinski to be in charge of his stables. So hence this word Hiszpan. Then another ancestor whose surname was Mlodzianowski was born in Mosaki Stari Wies. When he married he moved to his wife's village and because he came from Mosaki, he became known as Mossakowski. His records are under Mlodzianowski but his son was known as Mlodzianowski dicto Mossakowski, each generation after that the family was known as Mossakowski and they are still known as Mossakowski. -----Original Message----- From: Blah BlahBlah <olgc1964@gmail.com> To: vgfedor <vgfedor@telus.net>; polandbordersurnames <polandbordersurnames@rootsweb.com> Sent: Tue, May 21, 2019 4:48 pm Subject: [PBS] Re: Unusual entries in birth records Hi, Well, good ol' Google translate said "alias Dzbowski vocatus" means "some call Dzbowski," so it sounds to me as though it's just some sort of alternative name for the person.
