I Hope that by adding this name to the Genforum listings it will encourage all interested Tokarski’s to enquire of their roots, and possibly establish family connections.
The etymology of the name Tokarski in Polish is very clear, is an adjective of "Turner" (a traditional craftsman). (The English descriptive definition would be a lathe worker, the name probably came into existence before the machine but this is the English translation not the Polish meaning!)
I have been told there are 2 distinct family lines of Tokarski, both having their own coat of arms,(the 2nd coat of arms still eludes my research).
I am trying to put together my family tree, (It is very difficult without any records, as most are either destroyed, non existent, or in Poland, plus living in the UK does not help, I am interested in ANY INFORMATION REGARDING THE NAME TOKARSKI. i.e. where the name originated from, any information on its origins etc., coats of arms?.
I am trying to trace my Ancestors through my fathers line , his fathers name was Marion(male) and his mothers name was Catherine nee Melnik, Marion had brothers Jan & Peter. Bronislaw (Bronic) my father had the following brothers and sisters, Josef b.1924, Clementine b.1914, Wladislaw b.1926 & Helen b.1922. The family lived on their farm near the village of Wysokie near the town of Halich in Poland.
My thanks to all those "Tokarski’s" who helped me in compiling this information.
