Thank you for your followup post.It was kind of you to offer so many helpful links. I've already searched those sites, but gave Ellis Is. another look and checked every single option they offered with no luck.I did discover one grave link that was very close, but he ended up being Royal Army, which makes him British and not American.Since my (John) Andrew (O)Brosky goes missing between 1916-1919, he could have been lost to WWI.That would be a good reason I can find absolutely nothing on his death, not a single mention of the event where he lived, which strikes me odd.Perhaps money was an issue at the time and thus no newspaper obit.At least none I can find.
I have been researching my family line since 2004.I just can't get past my John Andrew (O)Brosky circa b: 1877, who was the first to arrive in America pre-1900. His changing surname has just been insurmountable.Without that original surname I can't find birth certificates for any of the older children.By 1914 he has a baby girl, Katie, who dies within a year; and her death certificate lists her, Obrosky, but her older siblings are still using Brosky.The older children will all eventually use O'Brosky, except one who dies in 1935 still using Brosky.
It's sad to say, but everyone who would have known, or even had a clue has passed away; so I'm totally on my own in my search.Perhaps I'll be lucky and someone will see this posting and just happen to have clues or even answers.
Again, thank you for your time and information links. Cam
