|May-06-16|| ||luftforlife: With all respect, the spelling above by <BIDMONFA> is incorrect. The link to his website does iterate the correct name, as does the name on his website: "Miquel Albareda Creus."|
Thanks to <whiteshark> for the helpful link to the article by Joachim Travesset published online at Ajedrez 365 on October 18, 2012, which is a moving memorial tribute to Miquel Albareda Creus replete with fond recollections of him, meaningful information about his chess career, and plenty of photographs. The player is frequently referred to in the encomium as "Miquel Albareda."
I believe "Albareda" was this player's his patronymic surname, and "Creus" was his matronymic surname, used chiefly in official contexts. I believe the proper way to write his name surname-first is "Albareda Creus, Miquel."
The header name of this bio of this player needs correction, and I'll submit a correction slip. I will investigate further to determine whether the bio for Creus should be merged into the corrected bio for this player.
Thanks to <BIDMONFA> and to <whiteshark> for their kibitzes and contributions above, and thanks too to <sachistu> and to <Annie K.> for their kibitzes and contributions, made in the thread on <Annie K.'s> chessforum that starts here: Annie K. chessforum (kibitz #6371).
