My project invlolves finding the proof of birth for: Joseph C. (POLEO) O'BRIEN (born, orphaned, adopted?) Apparent info (not certain) is: BIRTH 05 JUN 1921 • Brooklyn, Kings, New York, USA DEATH 11 OCT 1981 • Monroe, Orange, New York, USA
This is taken from SS Death Index.
His daughter's DNA leads to a 223 cM match with roots to surname O'Brien.
We believe his parents are Joseph A Poleo and Agnes O'Brien - but cannot find evidence of this and the NYC Birth Index does not have a matching entry.
Need a birth cert - death cert leads nowhere certain since informant did not have this data.
Joseph was born less than 100 years ago but evidence of his decease can be found at:
"United States Social Security Death Index," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JKKP-PNY : 20 May 2014), Joseph Obrien, Oct 1981; citing U.S. Social Security Administration, Death Master File, database (Alexandria, Virginia: National Technical Information Service, ongoing).
