Misspelt or Not?
I started searching for my family on Ancestory.com. I found my grandmother's mother and father, Agnes and Michael. I am not sure of the spelling of their last name though. It is either Makosiey or Makosiej. I found my grandmother's obituary and the spelling of her last name was Makosiej. The spelling on Ancestory.com is Makosiey. It could be both spellings. When my great-grandparent's came over they were probably misunderstood when they said their last name. In some countries, the j sounds like y. I am hoping to find the correct spelling soon. If anyone has any suggestions on where else I should look that would be great. I am also in the process of getting both of my grandparent's birth certificates, hoping that will shed some light on everything.
