Re: Obit: Delewski, Joseph M. (1906 - 1934)

my great grandfather's name was michael delewski, my grandfather's name was frank delewski, my father's name was frank delewsky. Can you tell me where Joseph Delewsski's parents were born in Poland or Germany? I am doing genealogical research on the Delewski name.
