Hi, I know my Father was in WW II I know his name was Edward Lysek, from Buffalo NY. I was taken from my Father when I was about 7 or 8 years old. I am doing a search on the internet, trying to find out if I have any relatives on my Fathers side. I know very little about my Father except that he was in the war, and recieved a Purple heart. I have a picture of him in his uniform. I know he died years ago, but dont know the date, or the year. I dont even know his birth date. All I have is my birth Certificate, with his age at the time of my birth. Will it do me any good at all to go to the VA here were I live? I have even done a search of the SSI death index, and can find nothing. PLEASE,,, if anyone has any ideas,,, PLEASE help me!!!
