JOHN KOZINKSI? Orphan train ring a bell to anyone??

My paternal great grandfather was on the orphan train in 1909. He had a tag around his neck saying his first and last name. It said "john kozinski", he had no middle initial. We know that he was born in 1906, was born in nyc, ny (manhattan area we believe). His mother had other children that we believed she did not give up for adoption. He was adopted by the damborinos in bay st. louis, ms. If anybody has ANY information on this missing link, it would be helpful.

Kimberly --- what kinds of records have you looked at in your search? My maternal grandad was a rider in 1902 when he was 3 years old. After much searching I was able to find out that he was left at the New York Foundling Hospital. He was also born in Manhattan. You can message me if I can help in any way.

Sincerely ....Katie
