I am researching the Vasilauskas and Venskunas families of northwestern PA (Clearfield County) for a friend.The earliest info I have is his great grandfather, Simon Vasilauskas, born 1 Oct 1888 in Lithuania, and Simon's wife Petronia (Mary) Venskunas, born 24 Oct 1888 in Vilnius, Lith.
I found a *possible* match for Petronia's immigration:
First Name: Petrona Last Name: Winckunaicze Ethnicity: Russia, Lithuanian Last Place of Residence: Seski, Russia Date of Arrival: Jul 30, 1908 Age at Arrival:20 yGender:FMarital Status:S Ship of Travel: Patricia Port of Departure: Hamburg Manifest Line Number: 0007
but I am not certain this is the correct person. The immigration year matches US census.
A possible immigration for Simon:
First Name: Serton Last Name: Wasilewski Ethnicity: Russia, Polish Last Place of Residence: Russia Date of Arrival: Feb 29, 1908 Age at Arrival:21yGender:MMarital Status:S Ship of Travel: Amerika Port of Departure: Hamburg Manifest Line Number: 0005
I am not very familiar with Lithuanian names but I had heard Wasilewski was the Polish spelling.
I was hoping to find a database of births, etc. to get more info on the ancestries of these people.Thanks!
