Hi Tom

I am looking at my great grandparents

Joseph Ilgunas 1877-1942 and Magdalen Kalwinski 1881-1940
possibly originating from Klaipeda or Suvalk.

Joseph is said to have had brothers and sisters living in the States but I have no record of their names.
I have found records to show that he landed in New York in 1899 aged 22 and his return to Glasgow in 1900 Aged 16, my impression being he failed to make his fortune and couldn't afford the adult return fare.

They married in Scotland in 1901 and produced a family of 14.

I have found both sets of parents names from the death certificates,which makes my GG grandparents
Joseph Ilgunas married to Elzbeta Astrauskas
Antanas Kudlinskas married to Elzbieta Lipsciute

Any tips on how to proceed

Thanks Scott
