Well you can always try on facebook, but your last name is changed do eng version and in Poland it probably is Czachorowski ( male ) Czachorowska ( female ). All you need now is name. It woulb be much easier if you knew location ( not specific but south, north etc ) so you can discount the rest of em. At the end there is the most easiest part:

Send a private message with question ? I hope it was helpful

CZACHOROWSKI: topo nick from Czachory or Czachorów; root-word probably now obsolete czahar/czahor (dwarf tree, scrub vegetation, mixed thicket).

if "Czahorski" is an English version then tell me how do you pronounce "cz" in English?

Ok, another possibility can be Czachorski. There are only 13 people with that name. We have two "h" sounds: 'CH' and 'H'. They both sound the same. The 'H' is nearly impossible, and was probably anglosized to retain the sound in English. Funny that 'CZ' was not changed to 'CH' which is the sound that would sound true to the original. It would have been Chahoroski. That would sound in English just like the original. This name, however, seems not to exist. Czachorowski or Czachorski is where I see the possibilities.

CZACHOROWSKI: root-word czachor - scrub or stunted trees of the kind found growing in ravines or very poor soil. Probably a nickname of toponymic orign used to identify someone from the village od Czachory or Czachorowo.
