American Dudz 1 | 9 18 Oct 2013 #1So, yeah. Well I know that my family is Polish and all but I've heard alot of times that my surname is a mix of american and polish. From the things I found out are that my family definataly lived in America for about 2 decades. I am starting to wonder if anyone in my family was american? My surname is Bernatowicz, From what I can see the Bernat bit is actually germanic so probably the american part?
