HI my mom and I are researching her Grandfather. We have some information as well as a photograph from when he was younger.
We Know when he was born (1895) in lukowa poland (at the time under russian rule). We have his Fathers name as Wasyl (Vasil) and his mothers name as Anastasia.
He arrived Nov 12th 1913 at Ellis Island on the ship the Czar.
His first name was Anton. He used the name Yucheck (Yuchek) over in the states. Ellis Island has his name as Jwezuk. Immigration papers from ICE has his name as Yuchook.
We can’t seem to find and birth records or baptism records with his or his parents names.
In the photo we have of him when he was younger we believe its with his father Wasyl. In the photo he has a pendent or something hanging from his tie that we are not able to find anything like it. We are at our wits end on this whole thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated
