Franz Jansky, Aussig an der Elbe, Bohemia, also of Berlin, Germany

I'm searching for relatives of Franz (Frank) Jansky who emigrated to the United States from Germany in 1923. His wife and 3 children followed, and arrived in America in 1925. Their names are as follows: Anna (spouse), Erna born 1908, Erwin (my Grandfather) born 1913, and Erika born 1915. I have come to believe that Anna was his second wife. I ordered their naturalization papers from the state of Connecticut, and Anna states that she has NO children. Their date of marriage was also not until 1921.

Erwin married a girl called Stella in Stratford, CT and they moved to New York. He and Stella had 7 children, Elizabeth, Helen, John, Maryann, Barbara, Frederick Erwin, and Norman C. Jansky.

Erwin worked at the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation where he met my Grandmother, Elta Jean Mares. Apparently a long affair ensued, and my mother is his daughter.

I want to find as much information as possible to trace the family roots. I'm currently living in Germany and would love to visit the areas that my family came from. Franz also had a brother, Emil that stayed here in Germany, his wife was called Rosa. Another brother, Rudolf and his wife Hedwig and daughter Helen Rose came to America in 1926. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
