Searching for KIRVELIS in America and Canada

Searching for KIRVELIS in America and Canada

Classification: Query
Surnames: KIRVELIS
I am searching for descendants of the Kirvelis family from Žaliosios, Marijampole, Lithuania near Plutiškės. There were eight children in this family and four of them remained in Lithuania: Jurgis (the youngest of the eight, born 1882), Marija, Magdalena, and Kazys. We know these families and are in contact with them. We are searching for the other four families who emigrated to America and Canada: Pranciškus (married to Adelę Luobikiūtę of Sasnava, Lithuania), Vincas, Juozas, and Ona.

Attached is a photo of Pranciškus and Adele Kirvelis taken at Lake Ontario, Canada in 1964.

If you recognize anyone from this Kirvelis family, please contact me.

Thank you. Christiana N.

Any idea about when they left Lithuania?

Thank you for responding to my post. Not sure when they left and am waiting for an answer to that question. As soon as I receive it, I will update this query. Do you know the Kirvelis family?

No, I am not related, or know anyone by that name. Just a fellow Lithuanian researcher. I find very little on that spelling, but find much more on Karvelis, still nothing that connects to your search for certain. I found a Vincas Kirvela, who went to Canada in 1928, but his age then was
27 which seems to make him too young. It appears he died in Macomb county MI USA, as that spelling is on the Social Security death index, born 4/6/1900 died Sept 1986. Also on Ellis Island there is a Ona Karveliti, arrived 3/20/1912, going to her brother Jurgis Pasvilaskis in Indiana Harbor IN (or IL). I just thought if you had some idea of arrival years, it would help to narrow down the search.

Thank you for trying to help. I agree with you. There is so little online about Kirvelis. Good luck with your research.
