General Info on Family Name Turek
Posted by: Paul Turek Date: June 05, 2001 at 00:58:25
  of 64

As I've seen posted before, Turek, Turk, and
other variations are very common names in
both Czechoslovakia and Poland. There is
a town in Poland called Turek. The name
simply means Turk or Tartar, one of the many
ethnic groups that have lived in the area
throughout history. The name is about as
common there as, say "Robinson" in the USA.
There are tens of thousands of Tureks in
both countries.
