Thanks for the reply. I understand that Zakrzewski IS actually the equivalent of Smith! Well, at least regionally. There are apparently not as many different Polish names as one would think. I have tons of lovely info on my grandmother's family from St Anthonys, and thus the weddings of two of the Zakrzewski brothers (they each married my grandmother!). I'll definitely keep you in mind should I turn up anything that suggests we have a link!
