toboyek 1 | 4 19 Jan 2020 #1Hello, I am a Toboyek from Wisconsin, USA and am researching my family geneology and am requesting help (hopefully from Polonius 3 or someone else with surname knowledge). I was told our current surname was spelled Tabojek or tabojk originally. From what I researched it is most likely a derivative of Tobias, meaning son of Tobias. On the 1908 Ellis Island entry form it states Widnace as the origin city so I thought maybe Swidnica? But my 23andme genetic report showed I am 75% Polish and my DNA most likely originated from 1. Rzeszow (Podkarpackie), 2. Krakow (lesser Poland), adn 3. Warsaw (Masovian) areas. So maybe Widnace is some small village in one of those areas or maybe they lived in Schweidnitz (what Swidnica was called at that time of German occupation) but originated from farther east? Does anyone know if I am correct of the Surname and if there may be some other village to match what the Ellis Island officials recorded? I also have Surnames of Adamski (son of Adam?), Omelian (unknown Polish?), and Kohonuski (unknown Polish) farther up as great grandparents. If anyone knows the origins of those surnames as well? Thank You!
