Re: Rookie Mistake
- That is sound advice! In fact, I just found a little more of my own
family history tonight that fits into that line of reasoning. After
all, the borders of eastern Europe have changed so much and Poland
was taking up a sizable chunk during my chosen time period. I will
pursue this further.

- I have checked the site and I did not find as many Slavic names as I
would have hoped. The surname is not as difficult as there are many
historical records of men's full names from that time period.
I am curious, however, if a 14th century Polish woman would take the
surname of her husband or not. Any thoughts?

college loves the stuff the Gabriel Guild does. I agree that last
names generally come under the category of locatives, descriptives,
or "daughter of" type things, though by the 14th Century you're
getting a bit of transition there.
