Hi all, I’m the second son of two Lithuanian displaced persons that after ww2 moved to the UK where I was born in 1951, Nottingham the land of Robin Hood.
Family emigrates to the land of Oz in 1965, this is my family and that is all I knew, mum dad and 3 boys.
1995 I begin to show a serious interest in my heritage as mum is now gone and unknowingly dad is around for only two more years. So a tree has begun. Paternal side is large and from the major research of Lithuanian cousins I have a 6th g grandparent.
My maternal side poses a dilemma, no one to turn to. Records from Arolsen, ITS, Australian archives shed little light. A contact through social media, there is a DNA relative but we cannot locate our most recent common ancestor. Now the search intensifies with new vigour.
Wikitree? New to me, now I’m new to you. Wish me luck and I hope I find what I’m looking for. “Niurnaitis” from Pilviskiai in Lithuania..
