Hi Valarie,
Thanks for helping me again..lol. The name is Karolina Kowalska, my grandmother. Somehow, I don't think Kamil is a polish name and the first letter of the first and last names don't look alike to me.

Hey Carryl,

I agree, actually the first letter looks more like an 'H'
Kamil is a Polish given name, but I don't think 'Hamil' is...
No doubt someone here will figure it out.

If you want to check out a 'Polish' genealogy forum, Polish Genius on Yahoo is fantastic
