Polish surnames/some RARE & unusual-DOMB KOWSKI

Callie, DOM & DOMB may have been written DA,B OR DA,MB, the "a" with a "nasalized vowel - a comma under
the a" giving it an "own" sound! Similarly, an "e" with a comma under it gives the e an "an" or "on" sound!! So the
names, DOMKOWSKI & DOMBKOWSKI, are often found as DA,KOWSKI or DA,BKOWSKI ! Confusing at least!
In this country, DAbrowski became DAMbrowski & DOMbrowski ! I'll check Saturday! Address for "PolishRoots" is
2211 Ontario Rd.,NW,Washington D.C. 20009-2606 ! Are you anywhere near Chicago? If so, come to the Chicago
Polish Museum/Library @ 984 N. Milwaukee/ Augusta & Ryan Expressway. Closed Thurs & Sundays! ALL ARE
