Alexho~ After some digging I found an Edmund Leracy who was born 6 Jan 1912 and died 22 May 1975 and a Helen Leracy who died 1985 in Chicago. Using Ancestry I was lucky enough to find an obituary for Edmund, but not for Helen (others might want to try as the Chicago Tribune obituaries in Nov. 1985 were giving me problems - someone else might be able to get to the surnames starting LER in the obituaries, I could not).

Chicago Tribune May 24, 1975

LERACY (LERACZ)
Edmund T. Leracy, late of the Brighton Park Neighborhood, beloved husband of Helen, nee Ziemba; loving father of Edmund J., CPD (Bernice) Leracz and Vincent Leracz; dear brother of Renee (Frank) Miller. Funeral Monday, May 26, 1975, 10:30 a.m., from Ocwieja Funeral Home, 4254 S. Mozart St., corner of 43d St. to Five Holy Martyrs Church. Interment Resurrection. Visitation Saturday 7 to 10 p.m. and Sunday 2 to 10 p.m. 254-3838.

In Social Security Death Index I found a Helen Leracy who was born 1 Feb 1917 (not Feb. 5 as you show Alexho) and died 3 Nov 1986 in Chicago (60652)

Found an Estelle Madura born 22 May 1919. Soc. Sec. card issued in Indiana. Died 17 May 1989.

At Family Search, Stella Ziemba’s birth certificate was created 25 Sept 1935 based on her father’s providing the information (no birth certificate was issued at birth). His address was 2529 W. 45th Place (same as in his obituary in 1948). Wonder if he was living there in 1930?

Are you anywhere near Chicago so that you could look Frank's name up in the old City Directories? If you could figure out where he was living in 1930 you might be able to use the address to find him in the 1930 Census - seems likely his name was written in the Census so that an indexer mangled it in some way.

Hope the info above helps. Looks like Helen's son Edmund worked for the Chicago PD. This should give you some good hints for tracking Helen's children down. They're probably in their late 60s or early 70s about now. ~PolishLibrarian

I think the Chicago Tribuine obituaries on Ancestry are only through 1985. May explain part of my problem since Helen died 3 Nov. 1986 (as I stated correctly the second time above). You can find death certficate numbers for Helen and Edmund on the CookCountyGenealogy.com website and you can order a copy of each for $15.00 a piece.

Oh that's funny! Where you wrote "The following information regarding Franciszek Ziemba is taken directly from the death notice & parish records here at Five Holy Martyrs Church" and the note about the funeral home no longer in operation.... I misunderstood and thought that the obituary was added to Find A Grave by someone living in Chicago. Embarassed
