Polish spelling for surname MAKSHIN #poland #names


Dina Hill
 

I am trying to locate the descendants of the 2nd family who hid my mom
and grandma during the Holocaust in Chrzanow, Lublin, Poland.

My mom is deceased now, but she gave me the name of the family in 1988
and I wrote it down phonetically MAKSHIN.

How can I find out how it was spelled in Polish?? I'm pretty sure
that's not a Polish spelling. The first family that hid my family was
honored at a RIGHTEOUS UPON NATIONS ceremony about 7 years ago. The
second family deserves that too.

It probably looked like, Makszin, in Polish the "sz" is pronounced as "sh".

It should be "Makszyń".

Hello
Makszin is a Hungarian surname, in Poland very rare in this form.
It could be Makuszyn or Makuszyń, they  would be  pronounced similarly to Makshin. 
Was this family from Chrzanów or from Lublin?
