I am researching my Domin ancestors and looking for others researching  this 
surname.  The Domin name has several variations (Tomin, Dominik,  Dorzein, 
Dommin) and several of these are found on the SGGEE Master Pedigree  list.
My g-grandparents were Gotfryd/Frydryk Pietroski, son of Katarzyna  
Pietrowska.  He married Ewa/Eva Domin in 1861 - Szynwald, Rypin,  Poland.  Ewa/Eva was 
the daughter of Szymon/Simon Domin and Maryanna  Pokrant.
My gg-grandparent, Szymon/Simon Domin was the son of Jacob "Tomin" &  Dorota 
"Klodowska" and was born in Kretki Wieki/Kretki Wielkie.  His wife,  Maryana 
Pokrant was the daughter of Jan Pokrant & Ewa Szliska/Schlieske and  they were 
married 1836 - Kretki Wielki.  In 1837, son Jacob was born, but  died the same 
year.  I do not know when my g-grandmother Ewa/Eva was born,  but she had 
siblings Karol/Karol Domin born 1846, Elzbieta Domin born ?, died  1853 and 
Maryanna born 1854, all in the village of Kretki Duze.
Other surnames that the Domin/Tomin ancestors are associated with through  
marriage are:
Skuza/Skura, Szulc/Schultz, Olszewska, Szlyske, Schober, Szyman,. Osielska,  
Plyt/Plitt, Krol, Thiel, Gotszal, Rozenau,  Szubert, Westfal, Pietrowska,  
My Domin's were associated with the villages of Szynwald, Kretki Wielkie  and 
Kretki Duze.  Other Domin's (most likely related) were associated with  
Kamionki, Osiek and also the above three villages.
I am wondering if the Domin name was changed from Tomin and/or was the name  
Domin an abbreviated form?
If anyone has been researching any of the above villages or surnames, have  
you come across the Domin surname or do you have a Domin/Tomin in your family  
history?  I am also wondering where the Domin's came from before living in  
the area surrounding Rypin.  Can anyone PLEASE help?  I would greatly  
appreciate any input.  Thank you.
