Surnames: Bendaszeski
My wife great-granmother has the surname Bendaszeski, here in Brazil.
These persons came to Brazil from a place where today is Poland.
But we don't know nothing about this family, because I think that Bendaszeski is a kind of adaptation for a surname that don't have how to pronounce here.
I tried find in the web, but didn't have any results.
I would like to receive some help.

What document do you have that says Poland?
BENDASZESKI looks so so Polish in spelling. You might want to post on Poland's Ancestry.
Here are few sites to get you started:
www.rootsweb.com/~polwgw/index.html
http://maxpages.com/poland
www.kuijsten.de/navigator
In 1990 census of names there were 2 BENDARZEWSKIs, 51 BENDELEWSKIs, 29 BENDERSKIs, 507 BENDKOWSKIs, 394 BENDOWSKIs plus other possibles but no BENDASZESKI.
www.herby.com.pl in Polish and only distribution.

If you put the surname Bendaszeski in the Familysearch, only one result, from Eugenio Bendaszeski.
But if you search in Google Books for Bendaszewski, many books in Polish are found. They talk about Eugeniusz Bendaszewski (the same person) and that he came from Tarnów.
But these results are the uniques found in the web. Because that I imagine that the real polish surname was other.

Possible that the surname died out or only shows up in a female line in Poland.
What if the original spelling was BINDASZEWSKI? This spelling shows up in Poland.

It is possible. One day I think that the name could be Bandoszewski, but I am not sure if the "a", or the "i" sounds like the "e" for us.
And I find the surname Bendasz, but I am not sure if the end "ewski" or only "ski" are possible to use.
By the way, what the end "ski" means?
In the State of Parana, Brazil, where I live, exists one of the biggest concentration of polish people (except Poland, of course). There are almost 1 million persons wich the ancestors came form Poland.
And the surnames ending in "ski" that we find in the telephone book are incredible.

I am not sure what SKI on the end of a surname means in Polish. Your question would be best answered on Poland's Ancestry or http://genforum.com

Yes, but if what I found is correct, Bendasz is a Lemko surname

What documentation do YOU have on your ancestor? You need to backtrack from yourself going backwards to find information. The church records are indexed by a village and then religion, not by a surname. The surname you are using could very well have been slightly different in Poland. SKI ending to me does not suggests Lemko. Was your ancestor Byzantine Catholic? BENDASZ might be Lemko/Ruthenian name but SKI does changes it to Polish.
In Slovak, the ending SKY means that the surname originates from a village by that name but not that you would actually find a surname in that village now.
Do you know Polish?
