Parents: Unknown

Those dreaded words.
I hate to see 'unknown' on recorded documents.
I finally get the record from the state of New Jersey - and there it is:  Unknown
Place of birth: Poland..... What happened to City or Town?

 1938 Death Certificate of Grzegorz Kolbusz

The informant was his daughter who immigrated with him in 1900.
Sad that she wasn't more attentive to the details. 
Even his age is way off.

It's too bad the certificate has "unknowns" on it. I wonder if there are other avenues that will lead you to the missing info? By the way, I've never seen the word "redacted" on a document. What does it mean?

NJ considers information related to 'cause of death' sensitive information and scrubs is from the certificate.

I find it amusing that NJ takes off the cause of death when you order it, because if you visit the State Archives in Trenton in person you can look up the full copy and make a copy of it for 50 cents. They have death records for the whole state through 1954!
