I have been trying to teach myself Polish,for when I was growing up my parents used Polish as a way of talking to one another so my brother and I could know what they were taling about. Back to the possible name change I came upon that form and ask my father but he could remember if it was changed. In all fairness he is 84 and his mind isnt as sharp as it used to be. Again any information is appreciated.September 12, 2012 at 2:52 am #394952
