I'm looking for some help myself.. My great grandparents came over from Poland, and my grandpa doesn't remember too much.. Im curious if my surname WINSKOWSKI was once something else.
I've tried to do searches and what not.. but the only thing I can find is my grandpas name that I entered into ancestry.com, my dads high school photo and my name in the Air Force Times.. :(
Any help would be sooo appreciated.
Some possible clues?
