Hi All!

First time post - loving the forums!

I am hoping someone out there might be able to help me locate any information relating to the surname FRACKOWSKI living in Poland. My father was from Poland and after he passed, he didn't leave much of a trail for us to locate any of his relatives living in Poland.

Look forward to your replies!

Do you mean "Frąckowski"?
couldn't see anyone with a - but with a polish letter "ą" there are more surnames.
Here is a map of this surname's usage in Poland:

Thank you for your help.

I have checked out the link you provided and it helped me out quite a bit.

The "ą" was throwing me out a little bit.

FRĄCKOWSKI: and variant spellings most likley originated as a patronymic nick to indicate the son of some Franc, Frącek, Froncek, etc. which is a take-off on the German Franz (for Francis). The proper Polish equivalent Franciszek which has the endearing form Franek and Franuś. That first name in its various forms has generated a slew of surnames including Frątczak, Franczak, Fronczyk, Frankowski, Franciszkowski and many more.
