Today I came across someone name Thomas Lee Wasmund who passed away few day ago.

I am wondering if Wasmund, Waksmundzki, Waksmundski are same village of Waksmund Valley.

Hello, Looking at my atlas, I only find one town named Waksmund and no other towns with a similiar spelling, so I think these may all refer to Waksmund.

Hi
It has been a long time since you posted the above. I have also seen your post here:
http://polishorigins.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6595&highlight=#6595

You may find it interesting to know that in the year 2000, there were 406 men with the name Waksmundzki and 412 women with the name Waksmundzka, concentrated in the Tatra region as you can see on these maps of surname distribution:
See: https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Waksmundzki

In the bottom right corner of the page you can see the top localities with the highest number of people with a given surname.

There is also just a handful of people named Waksmund: https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Waksmund

Waksmański and Waksmańska may be related surnames:
https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Waksma%C5%84ski


There are quite a lot of Waksmundzkis registered on Facebook and a Polish social network Nasza Klasa, www.nk.pl

I hope this will help you a little bit.

Best regards,

Slav

There is never too late to sign up to Facebook or start learning Polish Exclamation Laughing

You might try writing to someone in English, the young generation learn English at school although usually this is a rather passive knowledge.

This surname seems to be rare enough so perhaps contacting random people bearing this name might put you on the right track.

I wonder whether other PO members find Facebook and similar networks effective in family search.
