Re: Walter J. Oczko - IL
I think you may have that backwards. Oczko means "eye" in Polish.

I am told that Oczkos were from White Russia. They were Polish people from the area that was taken over by Russia.
My grandmother Martha Louise Bango, born in Chicago had a mother with the maiden name of Oczko and I am trying to find more on that family.
I cannot find info on when they immigrated to Chicago and from where. I am having the same problem with the Bango family.
Any info you have would be appreciated.I understand that some family members may have changed the spelling to Osco.
