Berzinski Family History, Early 1900's

Dear Diane, et. al.

I just happened to discover your online forum regarding the Berzinski Family in America. My impression is that you are curious about the Midwestern branch of the family. My family is descended from the Pennsylvania coal-mining district branch, centered in Mt. Carmel, PA. If it is helpful to know more about the family in general, here is some information:
My great-grandfather Josef Brzezinski came to America in 1862 from Poznan (just before the 1863 uprising). He died ca. 1912.
His second wife, my great-grandmother, came to America ca. 1870, died ca. 1936.
Her son, my grandfather, Clement Charles Berzinski, changed the family name to its present form before the 1920s. (He died in 1992 at the age of 89.) He had family who went to the Detroit area in the 1920s, 1930s. My father, Clement A. Berzinski, now residing in Florida, is probably aware of some of these relatives and what happened to them.
