My Gandmother and Grandfather are Polish, and came over after the war as displaced people. Our surname is Pacyna.
I have been told the family came by the name Pacyna (many many years ago), due ot the fact that they lived in the village of "Pacyna" during the cenus. I have also heard that like in the UK surnames in Poland can be traced back to trades/proffesions, and that Pacyna would have meant "police/authority".
Does anyone ahve any information to enlighten me ??
