Does Parcsetich de Rokosz sound familiar?
I love history Alex - it is something like my hobby ... but here we do have toooo much history ...
Well … the middle of the 17th century was the peak of the Turks invasion to the west, but in 1683 the Turks army was broken up near Vienna and it lost the initiative to the west. For several decades so called “Military Border between Turk Impair and Habsburg Impair was formed in the region of Vukovar. I think it would be not easy task to research about some defined family – it was a dark time.
What about Parcsetich de Rokosz
– I assume it is a name: the first one is ending“-ich”
– it is a typical end for Serbian & Croatian families, but not for a first name; such a family is not so usual for BG, or Russian family names (usually we use “-off”. The particle “de”
is not a Slavonic one definitely. Sooner it is coming from Roman type names, Venetians, or Spanish, I am not sure. The second name sounds like a Slavonic one, I am not sure about its pronunciation.
So …. For me the time for relax is coming … Here is my tomato salad (still from garden) and rakia … meanwhile – I try my new camera at the dark time – obviously it works!
CHEEEEEEERS Alex …. Наздраве !!!
