Updating since I was able to obtain some information on Grandfather Alex Gladkowski.  The most I have had so far.  Now I need on Grandmother Martha Pawlak from Poland.  Or maybe even Germany or Russia. Grandfather ended up being from Russia and not Poland as I had previously thought.  Have dates for her of 04/03/1889-07/05/1965.  I know the death date is correct but birth I have seen things with a range of 5-10 years difference.

Have you tried familysearch.org? It is a free site.

Yes, thank you.  I am already on that site also.  Have my own information on there regarding Alex.  That is all I have from family history.  Was always told his Father was Frank Gladkowski and Mothers name Veronica.  Nothing more.  I have his death certificate and that is all that is on it also. Have come across a few different spellings on the last name.  Have not been successful with any Polish searches either or even DNA connections.

Thank you for the reply.  Already have this information.  Most of this is already on my FamilySearch site.  I have my Grandfathers death certificate but it only lists his Father as Alex Gladkowski and Mother as Veronica.  No maiden name.  This is just from family recollections.  Alex died when my Father was only 15 so not much information.  I have not even been successful with DNA matching so far on Paternal side.
Accept for the naturalization card and ships record.  This is the first time seeing that information.  Very interesting!  Thank you again.
What do you have to do to get race changed on official forms?  Lists Grandfathers race as black and he was not.  Was white race from Poland.  I don't know if that is what causes some of the problems I encounter trying to find further information on him or not.
