Hello fellow Lithuanians! I need help finding G-Pop's origins. [Frozen]
Posted 2010-05-15 02:24 (#77155) Subject: Hello fellow Lithuanians! I need help finding G-Pop's origins.
I am sorry that I do not speak or write in Lithuanian and I hope you will pardon my using English. My Grandfather emigrated to the United States on the SS Köln from Breman Germany in December 29, 1910 and arrived in Philadelphia, PA on January 11, 1911. His name, before he changed it shortly after arriving, was Tamossus or Tamosius (?) Bajorunas and he was born in Šiauliai, Lithuania in August 1894. I can find very little information on him once he got to the United States.
My family is eager to connect to his origins in Lithuania but we don't have very much information. I also cannot afford to spend a ton of money researching this. Is there anyone who might be able to help me find ANYthing out about my Grandfather? Or even give me some hints?
Thank you in advance for any help that anyone might be able to provide.
