Hi

Berezowski

The etymology is from the word "brzoza" in Polish or "bereza" - береза in Cyrillic; it means birch tree. Very popular in Central Europe.

Zalusky
Polish orthography is Załuski

According to Rymut, the name comes from the name of the village Załusków (near Płock, community Iłów) or Załuszkowo (Wrocław voievodship, community Kowal).

Załuski 1640 - od nazwy miejscowej Załusków (płockie, gmina Iłów), Załuszkowo (włocławskie, gmina Kowal).

Best,
