This sounds like a rather weird question, at least the way it's worded.  What sort of info are you seeing?  His ancestry would be same as yours, assuming you are full siblings, not half-siblings.  Is this John Wosk of Virginia Beach we are talking about??

Dear Carol - In case you don't have this, I will transcribe your brother's obituary below:  (JOHN JOSEPH WOSK, JR.)

I was married to your brother from 1995 till 2001. I have 2 grown children who have his last name. There is a lot more to tell you however, I think it would be better as a private conversation.
Thank you for the information. I would love you to contact me. I live in the UK. I presume you are in USA? My name is Andrea and John and I had the same birth mother but a different father. I believe John had no idea he had half siblings.

  Are you saying that Margaret is your mom?  If so, then no he did not know that. I live in the USA. What would you like to know?
Hi Lisa,

  Thank-you for your reply. I would really like to know what  was he like and what sort of relationship he had with Margaret.

I have tried to contact Margaret but she refuses to aknowledge me and refuses to talk to me.

It is only in the last few years that I found that had died.

 Best wihes
