Hello, do you know if Kawollek is a germanized form of a polish surname?

Sincerely Jan

Hi,
If you are seeing a record with the name Kawollek, and trying to determine what Polish name that might represent, I will offer two options. Kawałek would be my first guess. Kowalek is also a possibility.
Here, you can see the distribution of people using the surname Kawałek in Poland:
https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Kawa%C5%82ek
I see that Dave has answered your question about the Skotnik name. You can see the surname distribution for the Skotnik name by typing Skotnik into the "nazwisko" box and clicking on "zjadz."
Best of luck in your research,
Sophia

Okay, thank you. But is Kawollek a germanized polish surname for sure or could it be a german surname or a surname from another country?

Sincerely
Jan

Hi Jan,
I can tell you that the "...ek" ending is not one that I am used to seeing on German surnames. You do find it on Polish surnames. It will be present in surnames in other languages, as well. So, I cannot offer you the certainty that you are asking for.
Best regards,
Sophia
