Komańcza Greek Catholic Births 1763 - 1781 (Powiat Sanok, Poland)

The following records were compiled by Debbie Greenlee. She is the owner and author of this page.

The file comes from the Archiwum Państwowe in Przemyśl. It consists of 112 pages, 66 of which are in old Slavonic Cyrillic and the remaining 46 use the Latin alphabet, mostly in Polish. It seems that some pages are missing and/or misplaced. Page numbers refer to the numbers written in pencil at the top of each page.

The following index shows only the baptism date and there is no information on the birth date. There are no record numbers and the house numbers appear starting with page 67. The Latin alphabet is used in a column format.

Some information is difficult to read because of the bad condition of some sections of the text or was crossed off or overwritten. In all parts of the index, elements that were not clear contain a question mark.

Comments on the Content

The name ‘Boiulka’ appears in the text in 3 different versions. It seems to me that ‘Boiutka’ used in the Latin part of the book, is just the way the priest wrote it and the proper version is ‘Boiulka’. But the Cyrillic part shows ‘Boiuwka’ (Боювка) in all places. I found a record dating from the beginning of the XX century showing the name as ‘Boiwka’.

The name ‘Popowicz’ is actually not a last name – it means that the man was a son of a priest (pop = Orthodox or Greek Catholic priest). The Greek Catholic priest (pop) during the whole period of time covered in this index was Grzegorz Komaniecki. In a few cases the index shows ‘Popowicz Komaniecki’, but in most places we get only ‘Popowicz’. In all these cases the proper last name should be ‘Komaniecki’. (It is interesting that nowadays the last name ‘Popowicz’ exists in Poland which means that most probably remote ancestors of these people were priests.)

The name ‘Sachar’ might be a first name ‘Zachary’ or a last name ‘Sachar’. In both places it appears, there is no second word to make it clear.

Starting with the column format of records, the priest crossed out the names of children who died soon after or at an early age adding most of the time the commen, ‘umarł’. All these names I marked with ‘+’.

The first names that the priest used are often diminutives the way they were used in everyday life, so I prepared a list of modern version names correlating to them.

It seems one of the records is doubled – the baptism of Ksenia the daughter of Antoni and Anastazja Komaniecki (Popowicz) is entered on 2nd of February and 23rd of March 1764. The name is the same, the parents the same, but strangely enough, the godparents are different.

Spelling – the priest was quite bad at spelling showing the same words in 2 or 3 different versions (even on the same page), so for example the word ‘żona’ (wife) was sometimes spelled ‘żonna’. In the Cyrillic part of the book, he used many abbreviations and letter omissions. Among many mistakes that did not affect the content, he made some that might obscure the important information - he used sometimes ‘ę’ instead ‘en’, so the name ‘Fenna’ from time to time was spelled ‘Fęna’. He also used in some cases ‘ą’ instead of ‘an’, so the name ‘Mankowicz’ was sometimes spelled ‘Mąkowicz’. The letter ‘l’ sometimes looks like a ‘t’. Keep that in mind while reading the index as all the first and last names here reflect exactly what the priest wrote.

Ela Sobota was the translator/indexer for these records. Ela is a member of the Bukowsko Triangle. We sincerely appreciate Ela for learning 'cyrylica starocerkiewna' in order to index these records.
