My great Grandfather, seemed to give false information about his past. My goal is to find a relative of his anywhere. We do not have proof of anything as fact, but here are some thing that may help us find family. If you know of anything to be similar let me know, AGAIN all of this may be false, but its all I have to go on.
We knew him as Alf (Andy or Alfred) Anderson, That name does not show up on any census until he was about 30 so we believe some or all of that name to be false.
He gave his birth date as June 24th, 1893.
He gave his Mothers name as Annie or Ann Skowranske (other spellings he gave was S. Kowrenski, Skowrensi, Skarenski, Skowrenske etc.)
His parents may have Emigrated from Russia, Poland, Denmark or Sweden, those are just guesses
He said he came from Cook County in , Illinois (maybe Chicago?)
He moved away from home around the age of 12, but may have stayed in the area for a while
We believe he was an older or oldest of about 12 children.
We listed possible siblings names of Mike, Benson, Patricia, and/or Joe
We believe at least one of those siblings may have moved to California and had a Political job
He may have been in Canada between 1918-1921 working as a Tailor (maybe gold mining area).
