Feb-24-11  BIDMONFA: Miguel Crues Albareda

  whiteshark: <Albareda Miquel Creus> * February 20, 1919 April 13, 2012

Obituary: with a lot of historical photographies.

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).

May-06-16  luftforlife: Miquel Albareda Creus was born at Sabadell, Province of Barcelona, in Catalonia; "Miquel" is the Catalonian form of "Miguel," the Spanish form of the Hebrew name "Michael."
May-07-16  luftforlife: Miquel Albareda i Creus won the men's individual Campionat de Catalunya d'escacs (the Catalonian Chess Championship) eight times (in 1943, 1945, 1954, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1962, and 1963), and was four times runner-up (in 1946, 1948, 1953, and 1965):

N.B.: The conjunction "i" in Catalan, meaning "and," is parallel to the conjunction "y" in Spanish. This player's name in Spanish is Miguel Albareda y Creus, also appearing as Miguel Albareda Creus and as Miguel Albareda.

May-07-16  luftforlife: According to an article provided by "Mate Postal" group on the International Correspondence Chess Federation website, Miguel Albareda Creus was the fourth unofficial, and the second official (1956-1958), Spanish Correspondence Chess Champion:
