Subject: Genealogische Forschung der Herkunft des Namens " Krzyzanowski"

Vorab habe ich mich in der Universität Erlangen in der Bibliothek in Heraldischen Büchern gestöbert und das Familienwappen gefunden. Es ist in dem Buch: Die Wappen des Preußischen Adels von J. Siebmachers großes Wappenbuch Band 14 Teil 1 auf Tafel 271 zu finden. Das Buch ist 1973 in dem Verlag Bauer und Raspe in Neustadt an der Aisch erschienen.
Next I stumbled onto the family coat of arms in the books of "Herald" at the library of the University of Erlangen. It was in the book: [ed note: loosely translated] The crests of the prussian nobility by J. Siebmachers (book 14, part 1, on illustration 271). The book was published in 1973 by Bauer and Raspe in Neustadt an der Aisch.

Wappenbeschreibung:
Schild: Auf rotem Untergrund befindet sich zentral ein Schweinskopf, dessen Unterkiefer ein blau bekleideter , unterhalb desselben schwebenden Armes fasst.
Helm: Stechhelm gekrönt
Roter Purpurmantel
Rotgekleidetes Frauenbild mit fliegendem Haar.
Die Frau trägt in beiden Händen ein Herz

Description:
Shield: on a red background is a centrally placed boar's head whose lower jaw holds a blue covered ... [ed note: something seems to be missing here] ... beneath the same is held by a floating arm [??? - the description seems to break down]
Helmet: crowned [pointed?] helmet
Reddish purple cloak
An image of a women dressed in red with flying hair.
The women is carrying a heart in both her hands.

Full page scan from the same page. The image in the upper right hand corner is the Krzyzanowski coat of arms. I notice a horseshoe theme with some of these coats of arms and the one above by Bill Krzyzanowski.

6. Swinka

Swinka (Polish medieval language for "Boar") is a Polish coat of arms. It was used by several szlachta (noble) families under the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

Swinka is one of the oldest coats of arms in Poland. According to legend, the history of the Swinka family began in 712, when a certain Biwoj, squire to Queen Libusza, gave her a giant boar that he had hunted down in the forest. The queen rewarded him with the coat of arms, the village of Swiny in Silesia, and her daughter.

Notable bearer: Wlodzimierz Krzyzanowski, General in US Civil War.
