Re: Obit: Bukosky,

Contact: Steven Bukosky
I just read your message so hope you recall the original posting from last June. I just checked this site due to tax time. My grandfather was Arthur Bukosky. Who settled in Loyal Wisconsin and later in Cornell Wisconsin. No further information is known to me. Once when asking my dad about ancestors, he said his dad, Arthur, told him "don't bother looking up your ancestors. You might not like what you find"
What little searching I have done seems to point to a Frank Bukosky who immigrated through Chicago Illinois. However, to complicate things, an aunt of mine once said that she thinks there once was an "f" in the name as in Bukofsky. Of course, the more likely spelling would be Bukovsky as the v is usually pronounced as an f.
While I have found many concentrations of Bukosky's around the country, the only relation that I am sure of is Betty Bukosky in the Chicago area, Jim Bukosky near Minneapolis Minnesota, and the black sheep of the family, Archie Bukosky who long ago moved to Salt Lake City Utah. I believe all in Utah are deceased. My cousin Michael in Utah died when he was somewhat young. As we had no contact with the family out there, I named my second son Michael James Bukosky.
