The hamlet ( Polish osada ) Janisze and then called Johannisberg was founded in 1845. On May 19, 1845, the Johannisberg establishment was established as a Vorwerk zu Stradaunen ( Straduny in Polish ) with a large courtyard and later a brick factory. Until 1945 the place was living space in the municipality of Stradaunen in the administrative district of the same name in the Lyck district and Gumbinnen district (from 1905: Allenstein district ) in the Prussian province of East Prussia . In 1910 a total of 67 inhabitants lived in Johannisberg.
Johannisberg came in 1945 in consequence of the war with the entire southern East Prussia to Poland and carries since then the Polish form of the name "Janisze". The place is now the seat of a Schulzenamt ( Polish sołectwo ), into which the neighboring Skup ( German Felsenhof ) is also incorporated, and thus part of the Gmina Ełk (rural municipality of Lyck ) in the powiat Ełcki ( Lyck district ), before 1998 the Suwałki Voivodeship , since then the Warmia and Mazury belong.
Before 1945 Johannisberg was parish in the Protestant Church of Stradaunen in the church province of East Prussia of the Church of the Old Prussian Union and in the Catholic parish church of St. Adalbert in Lyck in the Diocese of Warmia .
Today Janisze belongs to the Catholic parish Straduny in the Diocese of Ełk of the Roman Catholic Church in Poland . The Protestant residents stick to the parish in Ełk , a branch parish of the Pisz parish (Johannisburg) in the Masurian diocese of the Evangelical Augsburg Church in Poland .
