The Polish website I consult counts only four people in Poland called Tymenski (with a little mark over the n). These were all living in Silesia (Legnica, Wroclaw). As I stated before there were over 4000 Tyminskis (mark over n) in Poland at the same time (1990s). More than 1000 of these were located in the Warsaw area, with the next largest cluster in the Lodz area.
I think Tymenski and Tyminski are two spellings of the same name, and I've located a village in SE Poland, called Tymin, which could be the eponymous location of the name -
