i am researching my father's family, last name VANOSKY. i believe i am 5 generations decended from joannes jankowski brother to frank vanoskey. LOVED your research on the vanoskey/ jankowski family tree!
where did you find your research? did you come across why the name was changed from jankowski to vanoskey?
i am having trouble making the connection between my ancestor, john vanoskey and joannes jankowski.
my john vanoskey was born about 1837 in poland, married anna marciniak/ maianiak. lived in star city, pulaski, indiana before moving to chicago around 1900. odd thing is frank vanoskey,son of frank vanoskey and antonia lived 2 doors down in star city and moved to chicago around same time. both families worked on the railroad, i believe pennsylvania rr. the similarities seem too close not for them to be connected. do u have any ideas?
