 Re: serbian migrations to Poland in 18th century...MRDALJ family?
Raszeja sounds pretty much serbian because serbs were also called as "the Racsz" and simmilar, and Rascia is also the name for Serbia, because one of the first serbian states was Rascia (among Doklia, Bosnia etc.)
There was also in todays croatia place called slavonia...well, in the middle age it was also known as "Little Rascia", because serbs were majority (untill 1995 croatian ethnic cleansing and genocide)...
You have to find your mom's previous surname, before Raszeja, that is the key!You have to dig up in the past, where did her ancestors came from, maybe some old church books, u know the way...

 Prologue to Kosovo: The Era of Prince Lazar
Throughout most of that century the Serbian leaders, or great zupans as they were called, had been forced to recognize the suzerainty of the Byzantine Empire.
After 1180, however, upon the death of the Byzantine Emperor Manuel I Comnenus, the relatively small territory of Rascia (the eastern Serbian lands) began to expand into the land surrounding it, including today's Montenegro and Kosovo.
Under the rule of Stefan Nemanja, the founder of a new dynasty for Serbia, this new state continued to struggle with the Byzantine Empire and to recognize its authority, but the dominance of the Greeks in this region of the Balkans was clearly over.

 Insight: Legacy of Medieval Serbia
Perhaps, too, the raven, that great fl bird, evokes thoughts of the battle at nearby Kosovo Polje, which means "The Field of Blackbirds." There the Serbians were crushed by the Ottoman Turks on June 15, 1389, putting an end to two centuries of remarkable political, economic, and artistic achievements.
The following year, Stefan became Grand Prince of Rascia, centered on the Rashka River, with his administrative and residential center at Ras (near modern Novi Pazar), and in gratitude to St. George, whom he credited with his rise to power, he founded a monastery and built a church to him near Ras.
This church, known as Djurdjevi Stupovi or Towers (literally, Columns) of St. George, was the first construction in the Rashka architectural style, which combines features of the Byzantine east and the Romanesque west, of which King Milutin's church at Gratchanitsa is perhaps the crowning achievement.

 The Washington Times : Villification instead of dialogue.(Commentary)(Forum) @ HighBeam Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In his Aug. 24 letter, "Serbian Propaganda and the truth about Kosovo," Chad Nagle states, "Serb tribes settled in Rascia; therefore, they have no claim on Kosovo."
The Serbs may well have settled in Rascia in the 7th century, but a few decades later they moved on to Kosovo, much like American settlers from Boston and Philadelphia moved on to Washington as our nation's capitol.
Nagle cleverly omits the fact that Serbs ruled over their nation from the Nemanja dynasty in 1168 through 14 consecutive rulers to Lazar, son of Djuradj in 1458, clearly demonstrating that the Ottoman Turks did not conquer the Serbs until 69 years after the Battle of Kosovo in 1389.

Relations had been good with the Serbs and Hungarians since 1129, so their rebellions came as a shock.
The Serbs of Rascia, being so induced by Roger Guiscard, invaded Byzantine territory in 1149, although their grand zupan Uros was forced to flee to mountain fastnesses when Manuel and his army advanced against him.
In 1150 the Serbs became restive again, and this time they had the support of contingents from their Hungarian neighbours (ruled by Géza II).

This process continued for about three centuries, and by the eleventh century the Kosovo region was predominantly Slavic.2
