I'm looking for info on my great-grandfather's family in Lithuania. Joseph Januskevicius (later Americanized to Janush - he lived in NJ, MA and CT) 1883 - 1942, born in Vaiguviskiu Kaime, Ploksciu Vals.(town?), Sakiu Apskr. (district?), Lithuania, son of Simon Januskevicius and Ursula Zemuitaitis, whose names appear on his marriage record.
I know he left a sister behind when he emigrated to the US in 1902, and that she died before 1942, but I know nothing else about the family.
Joseph had a relative (I'm assuming they were related based on the similarity of names) in Hoosick Falls, NY, named John Jenuskevice with whom he corresponded, but I'm not sure how he fits into the family.
Any info would be appreciated!
