I am attempting to research my family history on my mother's side including my grandparents. My grandparents: Peter Whityck (died: Oct. 1940) and his wife: Ksenia Bratass (maiden name) where born in Poland. What I have been told is that they immigrated from Poland between 1910 to 1930. Unfortunately, I don't know the town they are from or any further ancestral history. I'm also trying to find further relatives and the fact if they were Jewish. My grandparent's children were: Peter Whityck (DOB Feb 2, 1922, died: Jan. 5, 1942), Mary Jean Whityck, (DOB 1933), Carol Emilia (Died: April 5, 1969), Carmen Olga (Died: March 1, 1979). My Grandmother, Jennie died March 21, 1978.
If anyone out there has ever heard of the surname of Whityck ( or sounds like) and knows the best way for me to proceed with my search please email me at email@example.com.
