I am looking for information on my grandfather, Josef Siezkowski. His date of birth is February 11, 1894-96. We know he lived in Suwalki, Poland and he came to the united states around 1912 and served in the U.S. army as a private in the 121st Eng. Co. U, discharged in 1918. Josef married my grandmother in Jersey city, NJ in 1925. Family story has it that Josef Sieczkowski was the oldest of 8(?) siblings, that his family worked on someone’s farm, and that 2 of his siblings were sent to Siberia. He died in 1967 in NJ. The Americanized version of his name is Joseph Sieckowski.
I have spent years trying to find any information on Josef. Because I don’t have an exact match of his immigration to the United States I am having great difficulty working backward in Poland.
I would love to know his parents names(their dates of birth, marriage and death), how many siblings he actually had and their names and dates of birth, what type of schooling Josef had, what the family’s everyday life was like, the address of their home, what happened to each of the members of Josef’s family, etc.
My search for information is especially critical now that several of my mother’s siblings have recently passed and my mother is ill. I would love to be able to share some details with her on her father’s family from Suwalki, Poland.
Thank you in advance!
