Hi :) im born in Poland and so my dad grandpa and so his father yet i find my surname to have nothin polish in it :) i wonder if someone can help me trace where my family came from :)
(ohh how i want it to be Hungary, Slovakia or other epic nation..)
You can phone the Urząd Gminny (municipal authority) in the locality your ancestor hailed from and ask for the Dział Ewidencji Ludności (population records section). They will usually tell you if anyone with a given surname lives in that area. Of course, this has to be done in Polish, so if you don't know the lingo, get a native Polish speaker to help you.
