While digging into my great-grandfather Joseph Gestaut, I found that his wife listed his birthplace as "Lokis, Lithuania" in her Petition for Naturalization. But I can't seem to find any place with that name in Lithuania. Does anyone have any idea where that might be? Thank you!
Hello, Joseph. There is a town in Telsiai county, Lithuania called Luokė. Just a theory - people from that district, Lowlanders (Žemaičiai) would have pronounced it as "Loki". Luokė Video Tour and Map
Thanks for the star, Deb!
