    Seems like Mr. Lukas lived in Illinois and/or the Chicago area most of his life. He is listed as 11 years old in the 1930 Census. Had a younger sister, name starts with a J, who was 2 at the time and an older brother "S", who was 13. His parents were from Poland. Maybe try to track down relatives from either brother or sister. I'm sorry that I don't have more time to work on this. I also don't have an ancestry.com account to dig into.
    Please be aware that what I type is my opinion.

    1940 records

    If you can send me the enumeration district from the 1930 census I can try to look them up in the 1940 census (hoping they didn't move) and see if there is more info in that record.

    Let me know via PM

    I am really bad with geography.....if someone was born in Austria, could they also interchange it with Poland?
