*** John Andrew (O)Brosky circa b: 1877, who was the first to arrive in America pre-1900. I take it you have not located his arrival manifest?

Up to 1918 it was
You mentioned Galicia.Austria.

Did the 2 ancestors marry in America? If yes, than the church marriage record should have a place of birth and parents names. Possible your ancestor change the spelling when he was naturalized citizen.

Russia has nothing to do with your research. It just suggest that the clerk heard Russian but actually it was Rusyn/Ruthenian - Byzantine Catholic. Judging by the distribution of GACEK surname holders it would suggest Malopolskie wojewdztwo for this surname.

SKI is Polish ending.
