About the Project

The Wołoszyn Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Wołoszyn name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Wołoszyn name.

About the surname

Wołoszyn, Volosin, Волошин, Woloshin, Voloshin, Woloshyn, Wolosin (and many other variants) is a Slavic surname which is particularly concentrated in the former Galician province of Austria-Hungary, in modern-day south-eastern Poland and western Ukraine. The origin of the surname is conjectured to be cognate to Wallachia, potentially indicating a distant Romanian ancestry. Due to immigration, particularly to the United States and Canada, the surname is often mutated considerably (e.g. from Volosin to Wolson). It can also be found wrongly transcribed as Wotoszyn (due to the Polish letter Ł).

You can get a sense of the distribution of the surname from this map of the birthplaces of people who have a Wikidata profile.

The purpose of this name study is to gather together all the known information about people bearing this surname or one of its many variants, and to aid those whose ancestors may be difficult to find in the records due to transcription errors or transliterations as they migrated between different linguistic communities.

Note: although the main name for this study has been chosen as Wołoszyn (with variant spellings on Wikitree selected as Voloshin and Woloshin), no claim is made regarding whether these are the “true” spelling or not; different languages have their own orthographies for spelling this name and all are equally valid for inclusion in this study.

Family clusters

In this section all the public profiles on Wikitree are listed, organized according to the earliest known patrilineal ancestor. Birth/death locations are as listed on Wikitree.

One of the first tasks of this project will be to extend these family clusters as far as possible given available online records. In particular the people unconnected to other Wołoszyns are the priority.
