Happy Easter Everyone,

I am finally looking more back into my grandmother's family and some Arctopolitana names have come up. Now I know this is a huge huge family but to begin with I would like to know:

1. If anyone here has Arctopolitanus members in their family tree (maybe I can find some more cousins :) who are close enough to my ancestor.

2. Does anyone know the meaning of the name and where it came from? It sounds very Latin and with the endings US or NA depending on boy/girl is interesting.

I have googled it but many family trees have come up (with some of my ancestors in too), but it is all in Finnish or Swedish. My Finnish is basic but I am getting better. Sooooo, I am throwing this out there and seeing what comes back :)

Here is my link :

My 7th Great Grandfather was Joachim BRANDER b.1667 d.1774 Ulvila
He married Kristiina PAULINUS b. 24.07.1681 Pori d.22.09.1764 Ulvila

Kristiina was the daughter of Agneta ARCTOPOLITANA and Henricus Pauli PAULINUS.
Please note that I am not sure of the dates I have.
I am hoping to confirm that this is the correct link.

Many thanks!

OK everyone, getting a little excited here....and I know I am one of many thousands of descendants :) but still, exciting stuff :
I have now gone further back and have the names of my ancestors going back from my 7th great grandparents Joachim Brander and Kristina Paulinus going further back to the late 1300 hundreds and Princess Mary of Scotland and King Robert III of Scotland......a direct link. I have printed the whole tree of my grandmother's Brander family and stuck it on the wall. Almost 700 years. Amazing!
I have lots of dates to fill in and further siblings to find but it is great to have a line finished! And to end up in Scotland!
Thank you for listening.

Ulvila current site transferred to our city were given the name of Björneborg "Bear castle" the Greek word was the equivalent of Arctopolis, was usual that priestman work and took home the place name, so Arctopolis just kind of from Björneborg.
