     Further to Jan's information.  There is no reference at all in my 
dictionary of German names, to Oszczewski, so there is no help there, sorry.

John Marsch


   I'm sorry, but I cannot help you with the origin or meaning of the surname
   Oszczewski.  However, I can tell you that it is a very rare surname: 
only 13
   people with that name were living in Poland some 10 years ago.  Olszewski,
   on the other hand, is much more common, almost 45,000 people with that name
   are living in Poland.

   Personally, I don't think there is any connection between these two names.
