"Niedzolkowski" is the surname of my great grandparents on my mother's side, who were immigrants from Poland. How exactly do you pronounce it in its authentic Polish pronunciation and dialect?

Nyeh-jih-OL-kov-skee!

The "dz" is a complex sound and its very hard to think of a "word" that depicts it correctly without actually saying it. Put your mouth in a square, teeth shown clamped together, and make the sound a plane makes! That is the best way I describe "dz"

You should also know that in Polish the correct spelling of your surname is rather: Niedziołkowski than Niedźiołkowski.
