Re: Is There a Roszce Poland? / Pasko Family - brain stream from RP Warsaw :)

In Reply to: Is There a Roszce Poland? / Pasko Family by Greg Jakubowski of 56480

Hi Greg,
Maybe I can help in locating the family origin in Poland of your Albert J Pasko born abt 1875 in this part of Europe, here are my thoughts:

If his first name is Albert, so, Albert, Adalbert was given in his church/civil records in Latin and "exported" to the U.S. like with many other immigrants, and it was originated from Polish first name Wojciech - for Polish genealogy it was tipical for south Poland, in the 19th c under Austria-Hungary Empire in the provice named Galicia.
Family second name: you gave Pasko, our forum best friend Norbert gave also Golon, and seems they are:
Pasko, also as Pas~ko - Paśko - with Polish etymological works this old Polish family name derived from Polish language and word "pas" - a belt (supposingly your first ancestor named Pasko was specialized in producing or trade belts), and SE Poland was one of the cradle of this surname.
Golon is not from Poland, in SE Poland I see in the same SE Poland this might be Golonka - derived from Polish language and word and name "Goleń", noted in Poland from the year 1166, Golonka is noted from 1520.

Checking Polish etymological works with all places in 19th c Galicia named "Roszce", Rosz....., etc. I do suppose the right is Ropczyce, now located in SE Poland.
The full place name was shortened like many others after immigration to the U.S.

For your Family Immigration History Book here is the image of the Polish family holy church, where they were batpized, married, and burried in the local cemetery located at the church:

You can search family records in Poland, or ordering FHL/LDS micrifilms from their centre in Salt Lake City, they have some from the 19th century:

Merry Christmas!

PS. Here is the next confirmation from Polish censuses 1990/2002, in this Ropczyce are still living after 100 years:

1. Halina Paśko, Ropczyce, Poland
2. Jozef Paśko, Ropczyce, Poland
3. Katarzyna Paślo, Ropczyce, Poland
4. Marek Paśko, Ropczyce, Poland
5. Marian Paśko, Ropczyce, Poland
6. Mieczyslaw Paśko, Ropczyce, Poland
7. Teresa Paśko, Ropczyce, Poland
8. Andrzej Golonka, Ropczyce, Poland
9. Elzbieta Golonka, Ropczyce, Poland
10. Jan Golonka, Ropczyce, Poland
11. Marek Golonka, Ropczyce, Poland
