Adamiak Early Origins



The surname Adamiak was first found in Cracow, a province of Poland which lies centrally, bounded by Kielce, Lublin, Silesia and Lwow. The captial city is Cracow, said to be the intellectual center of Poland. The region is composed of Poles and Gorale (Highlanders) who speak their own dialect and wear picturesque costumes. One Adamowicz family line is of old Lutheran descent from Austria, who, in around the year 1500 went to Harrien and Wierland, and it was there that they probably took on the Polish name Adamowicz.
