I am working on a genealogy project as a gift for my step-brother's family. It is by no means a comprehensive genealogy but a family picture in which each of my step dad's ten siblings are identified. I cooberated by email with two of his remaining living siblings to get the names corrected. I also found the father whose name was Leon Bartnicki in the 1920 Milwaukee census, draft registration cards and immigration records. All of which I located on Ancestry. The family surname is Bartnicki and the family is of Polish descent. My step father's mother's (Josephine) surname was Luczynski and the US WWII Draft Registration card for 1942 for her brother Walter M. Luczynski states that he was from Witowo, Poland. His address was 5203 Racine Avenue, Chicago, Cook, IL. His wife's name was Helen Luczynski. They had a child whose name was Wandz (pronounces "Vash") and she shows up in the 1930 census as Martha (name change per my step aunt). Lastly I located some of my step dad's deceased relatives on the website for the Catholic Archdiosese (Bartnicki)
