Thompson, Greenwood...unless they are 'translated' names of Polish origin, can't tell whether you are of Polish descent or not.
You'd better post some other names ;)

Well, I don't know. I would hope eventually to find out what I am. Not to mention everytime I talk with my Polish pal, he always refers to his friends who are also Polish as his Polish friends. I want to know what in the world he calls me, :) I also want to travel to Poland soon. Also curious about how the locals would respond to me. I am learning Polish.

Thanks,

Sarah

Good luck in your discovering. :) But remember you're who you want to be... If you want to be Polish and study their language/culture no one can prevent of being Polish.

Do you have a grand-mother or grand-grand-father who was Polish? Cause being an American, there are many 'possibilities', you could be of German descent, or Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Norwegian, French, etc. and English of course ;)

Why not legally change your name to Tomczyk, Rysio and/or ZieliƄski and be done with it?
