Gorenjski glas will start publishing a new column entitled Gorenjski priimki on Friday, October 16. It will be prepared by history professor Tino Mamić, author of the book Surname, their origin and meaning. The first described surnames will be Naglič and Nagel, followed by Starman and Gerjolj.
Gorenjski glas began to be published in 1947. It has a picture of Gorenjska, Slovene haste next to its name, which is also connected with the first described surname. The director and editor-in-chief is Marija Volčjak. The company Gorenjski glas also has its own printing house in Kranj, which is considered to be of high quality, has its own portal Gorenjskiglas.si, and also publishes a number of local newspapers. The voice comes out in Kranj on Tuesdays and Fridays. It is the most important Gorenjska newspaper, with a circulation of 19.000 copies and a readership of 65.000 readers. The newspaper is on sale in newspaper stores, and the price of a copy is 1,85 euros.
Tino Mamić says that he is happy with the new agreement for the regular publication of articles on surnames: “Surnames are our identity. Each surname has its own story, just as each genus has its own story. But finding the roots is important because it also raises self-confidence. ”
