Thanks for your help.
I think that he is a relative of a friend of mine. I have been doing some research to try to find where his relatives came from in Lithuania. Every little piece of information helps to form a picture.
The following information was taken from the archives and I think that this must be the same Simas.
“In 1926 Zose Albaitis died - 3 weeks old, her F: Simas Albaitis, M: Monika
nee Dambrauskaite.”( Pajevonys)
The following information is taken from the 1914 reserve lists.
Jonas ALBAITIS, Andrius' son- born around 1892, a reservist in 1914,
lives in Egliniskiai village.
The above family are definitely related to the family that I have been researching and I think that Andrius and Jurgis are brothers.
Several other siblings came to the UK.
“The farmer Jonas ALBAITIS, Jurgis-Juozas' son,- born 1893/28/08, lives
in Aleksandrova village. Father: Jurgis-Juozas - 55 old,
Jonas' brothers: Vincent-30 old, escaped/or in an illegal stay. (V.B.
usually it means that a person was abroad), Pijus- 23 old, Simonas-14
Pijus left in 1926 for Brazil.
Andrius and his wife and younger son were killed in an explosion during WW1.
