I am looking for information about my maternal grandmother’s family (the Soltysik family).
Her grandfather, Michael John Soltysik, is the primary person I am looking for more information on. If I can get accurate information about him and his records, I know I will be able to go deeper down the family line. A lot of the records I find for him say different things, so I will tell you what I know (or what I think I know) already. I am mainly looking for his birth records, marriage record, and his parents names. I am also giving you the American versions of their names because I am truly not sure which versions of their names were used in Poland.
Name: Michael John Soltysik
DOB: 1882 (possibly June 24) Location: unknown, Poland
He arrived to the US in the early 1900’s, possibly around 1906-1908. I believe he was already with his wife and mother of his future children at this time, so their marriage possibly occurred in Poland. His wife’s name was Mary Ann Kozubek (possibly Marianna). She was born in 1888 in Poland and died in 1956. They settled in Chicago eventually and had children (the children I am certain of are Walter Soltysik and Bessie Soltysik).
Death: December 1954
