Query by Debbue

Hi my name is Debbie. My Fathers name is Andrew F. Fosty Sr. He passed away 4/29/1997, I am starting to look up information about our family tree. His D.O.B. is July 8, 1921. He also had brothers by the name of Mike, William, Jack, and a sister Mary. (all are deceased now). I know that there was a nun, by the name of Sister Mary Adornia (not sure on spelling) Growing up we were told he came from Austria,(I have now learned the HIS PARENTS came from Austria) We were also told that he had a twin that died at birth? His parents were John & Justyna Romunuk Fosty. He,my father, was brought up in Lanesboro, and Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I have also learned that there might be some relation with the name of "ROMUNUK" He Also served in WW2 in Europen Theater.

My grandfather John, came over from Austria in the year of 1912, on the ship called Petorria, 2 years after 1914, his wife, Justyna came over on the ship called Kriser Wilhelm DerGrosse. They live in Pittsfield, Massachusettes.

My grandfather was born in the month of March in 1885, and died in October of 1928. In the year of 1918, he was drafted at the age of 33

My grandmother estimted year of birth was around 1892. Do not know when or where she passed away.

Dear Debbie, Hi there. If you click on the surname FOSTY, you will see a bit of information that I was able to collect.

With regards to an ancestor working in the European Theatre, check out this website. Rootschat.com - Travelling People

For topics about ancestors, who travelled around the country. Romanies, Gypsies, Tinkers, Travellers, Circus people and the like.

Sign up as a free member, just like familytreecircles, then post a new topic (journal). You never know, you may just get lucky.

For the ROMUNUK surname, try The Surname Navigator. This is a very powerful genealogical search engine. Give it a whirl for FOSTY also.

Kind regards,
