I think we're related. My grandfather (michael cizik) always told me if i found someone with the same spelling that chances are we'd be related.

My Aunt is looking for descendants of, or someone who knows of a Max Cizik who had lived in Bellwood, Illinois. My Aunt is Mildred Palmer (Copper) who also grew up in the Maywood, Bellwood, neighborhoods of Chicago and Withee, Wisconsin. Max was a classmate of hers. She is now 88 years old. She has an item given to her by Max that she thinks may be of value to his descendants, and would like to see it go to them.
