J?nis Grasis (1875-1950) was Margreta’s (i.e., Aina’s) grandfather. It’s not known where he was born. He was a carpenter, and it is said he was a major in the czar’s army. He married Al?se (who died in 1990; her maiden name, date and place of birth are unknown; it is thought that she was a Baltic German.) J?nis Grasis and Al?se lived in R?ga on V?rpu street, but divorced during Latvia’s first period of independence. They apparently had 2 children: Margreta’s father – J?lijs, and Margreta’s aunt Veronika Zenta Grase. Veronika was born in the 1920’s and died in childbirth in the 1960’s when her son Dainis was born. Veronika earlier also had a son named J?nis. Veronika Zenta Grase’s married name is unknown. Margreta’s grandmother Al?se raised her grandson’s Dainis’ daughter – Zenta. Zenta’s surname is unknown. The last contact between Margret’s father and his mother Al?se was either in 1980 or 1990. (See Latvian language translation below.)
