I'm curious to find out any information about the surname Laszczkowskich, from the town of Lawsku. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Furthermore, how common is it to have a Polish surname end in ch?

Hi lecount1973

I can see that Zenon has answered a similar question here: http://forum.polishorigins.com/viewtopic.php?p=2252

I can only add that in Polish the surname is Laszczkowski. Laszczkowskich is the plural form in the Genitive case as in rodzina Laszczkowskich – which means “the Laszczkowski family”, “the family of Laszczkowski”.

According to a map of Polish surnames ( https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/ ), people with the name Laszczkowski/Laszczkowska are concentrated in north-eastern Poland.

I have found Lawsk in Grajewo County in Podlaskie Province: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%81awsk
See Google Maps: http://goo.gl/maps/CyaXy

The form Lawsku would appear in a phrase urodzony w Lawsku – born in Lawsk.

I hope you have made some progress in your family history research. You are welcome to share both your successes and difficulties in this Forum. We are all here to help each other.
