Thanks for the reply to my posting. I know my posting is old and yes, in fact, I have found a lot of information on my Plucinski line over the past couple of years. I in fact do know that my Great Grand father's name was Ignatz. It showed up on my GrandFather's death certificate. What I don't know is where he came from in Russian Poland, what his mother's name was, and if he had any other siblings other than his brother Wawrzyniec who immigrated to Milwaukee and most of that line still lives in Wisconsin. Most of the John Plucinski male descendants changed their name to Palmer. My father, Frank, was one of the few who used the Palmer name for work but never legally changed it from Plucinski. Therefore, my brother is still a Plucinski, but all our male cousins are Palmers.
