Re: Benedict Pakienas

My name is Jen Berrett. I just read a post from you from years ago that makes me want to ask you a question. My great grandfather's name was Benedict August Kennis. He was born in Kanna, Lithuania 25 Dec 1883. My mom and grandma thought that his dad was named Joseph and that his mother may have been Rosie and that he had 15 sisters and one brother. For years I have suspected that he americanized his name when he immigrated, but had no idea what surname he was born with. I just found his WWII registration record where he listed a Benedict Pakienas as a relative who would always know his address. Your post said that your Benedict Pakienas was also from Lithuania. Do you by any chance know if and how my great grandpa and your Benedict Pakienas may be related?
