I’m not related to any member of this family.
1940 is the last available census at this time.
Stanislaw N. Ball = Stanley
Galica = Poland
Igor Zelinski does not appear on any census record.
Valentina Ball does not appear on any census.
You wrote - "I have her death certificate and it states she was buried in Upstate New York, BUT there is no record of her being buried there..." WHERE did you order her [Valentina's] death cert.?????????????
Need DOB + birthplace for George Zelinski.
After Sophia died in 1937 DID Stanley remarry ?????????
Chances are that Stanislaw N. Ball and Sophia [Iwanowski] Ball immigrated after 1940.
