Random quote: "Mes, lietuviai, esam mįslinga tauta. Mes vis dar savo dvasioje tebesiblaškom tarp buvusių valdovų imperinės pilies ant Gedimino kalno ir susmegusios į žemę vargdienio lūšnos, vis dar nedrįsdami praverti langų ir mesti drąsų žvilgsnį į Lietuvos rytojaus viziją." Vytautas Alantas (1902 - 1990)

Katie has been trying to find out for some years where her grandfather was born in Lithuania. On the manifest he states that he came from Mariampole. That is more likely to be the area surrounding Mariampole than the town.

Katie's great grandmother was called Miliunas and Katie has the entry from the dictionary of surnames for this name, What she needs is the entry for Paliokas and the derivatives of the name. The idea then is to compare the villages that the Miliunas families were living with the Paliokas families to see if there is a common denominator and focus the search on that area.

I have done this myself with names I have been researching and whilst not perfect it led me to further information and was fairly accurate. So if there is anyone who has access to the Lietuvių pavardžių žodynas
and could look up the Paliokas name we would be grateful. Whilst the meaning of the name is interesting it's the actual geographic locations of the Paliokas family listed in the Lietuvių pavardžių žodynas that are of particular interest.

Thank you.
