Does anyone know if there is a connection between the village 'Dauksiai' and the surname 'Dauksis'? I am researching my paternal grandmother's line (Dauksis) and came across some curious things. First, the similarity between the village name and surname. Furthermore, my records associate my g-grandfather, Jonas Dauksis (abt. 1878-1955), w/ either Puskeliniai, Lithuania, or Marianpole, Russia- I noticed that Dauksiai is in county *Marijampole*- possible mix-up? Beyond Jonas, I only have the names of his parents- Mataiosziu Dauksis & Ona Paczecziute. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
