Greetings all,

I am working on my Family tree and I found a Great Grandmother who was born in Lomza, last name of Langowski. Her Mothers maiden name was Hyntnik. Can anyone help me?

LANGOWSKI: root-word German and Yiddish adjective lang (long); could have originated both as a patronymic tag (son of someone nicknamed Long) or toponymic nick for someone from Langowo.

CHĘTNIK: root-wrod Polish adj. chętny (eager, willing); Hyntnik is an attempt of phonetic respelling in America. The proof of that is that the £omża area is Poland's Chętnik stronghold..
