Our Last name is Gliwa and yet I can't find any Polish coat of arms or anything to verify the family clan. Where should I look next?

You can't say your name doesn't appear anywhere - it's quite known in Poland:
moikrewni.pl/mapa/kompletny/gliwa.html

If you want to contact some ancestors try to reach people with the Gliwa surname in/near the place of residence of your known relatives from Poland. Use Facebook page and the nk.pl ('equivalent' of FB in Poland).

However, considering the coat of arms - yes, I couldn't find any info about Gliwa COA. Maybe another PF user named Polonius3 will give his opinion about this name, he should know better.

coat of arms for Gliwa

No Gliwa ever held membership of a szlachta (gentry) clan and therefore no coat of arms accompanies that surname. But Gliwa descendants -- Gliwicz and GliwiƄski -- did eventually make it into the ranks of the well-born. Please PM me for details.
