My maternal g-g grandfather was Wincenty Jonas Sakavicius b.abt.1836 in Punskas, Kalvarija m. to Marianna Kaminska b.abt 1840 in the same area.
Children: Antanas b. 1862 (my g-grandfather
George Jerzy b.1865
The name my grandfather and mother went by is Sakievich. This happened about the time the family came to Baltimore, MD. I was told this is a Russinized version of the name.
Kaunas is farther to the North but still close enough. Punskas is now known as Punsk and is located in Poland.
Always hoping to make a connection.
