France Prešeren and his relatives


The 8th of February is celebrated in Slovenia as Prešern’s day (the anniversary of his death). Slovenes have been celebrating this national Cultural day since 1944. In 1990, the seventh stanza of his Zdravljica was declared the national anthem of Slovenia.  P. Hawlina, the president of Slovenian Genealogy Society, has posted short notice about surnames in a family tree of France Prešeren, one of the greatest Slovenian poets:

The anniversary of the death of France Prešeren (3 December 1800 – 8 February 1849)  every year awakens some interest in his genealogy and relatives. It is interesting that among his relatives is no one with the surname Prešeren, but nearly 250 other surnames. These are:
