Re: Ruszkiewicz, Feliks/Lukaszewska, Zofia
I sent you a copy of the 1930 U.S. Census for Felix and Sophie Ruszkiewicz.It is indexed on Ancestry.com as Felix “Niczkyarwz”.
There is an U.S. Naturalization index for a Feliks with the Queens NY database.
He was naturalized in 1911 and his records are on file in volume number 6, petition number 1378.I also sent you a copy of that index.
Sophie Ruszkiewicz was born on September 23, 1883 and died in February 1980 in Jersey City, Hudson County, NJ 07306.She was the recipient of Social Security benefits, SSN 060-03-6932.
You can write to the Social Security Administration in Baltimore and request a copy of her Social Security Application (form SS-5).
This document asks the applicant for their date and place of birth.I have to caution you that sometimes the applicants would only list the country of “Poland” instead of the specific village or town.
There is an April 10, 1903 New York (Ellis Island) arrival record for a Sofia Lukaszewska.The age and time of arrival seem to match other U.S. documents for Sophie Ruszkiewicz.
Her destination was Philadelphia PA where she was going to join her brother-in-law Anton Kozan.
She could have known Felix in Poland and they could have been married when she arrived in Philadelphia.
Do you know the exact birth date for Stanley, their first born?
