Surnames: Lajter
The Lajter family consisting Mum called Aggafya born 1866 married to Peter Lajter, born 1862. They married in 1887. Altogether they had 3 children - Peter, Anna and another son.

Peter and his brother, who I do not know the name of, travelled to the USA around 1912. Peter returned to the Ukraine in 1920 from New York.

The unknown brother stayed in the USA.

Does anyone know of any information in their own family tree or anything that can be of help? Please?!?

Thank you

Hi,
Thank you for replying. This is all the information I have:

Peter Lajter born 1869 married Aggafya born 1866 in 1887 in Michalinok, Occ. Ukraine.

They had 3 children:

Peter 1888 - 1981
Anna 1890 - 1967
And another son who I don't have a name or dates for.

Peter and his brother went to America around 1912.
The brother stayed in the USA, but Peter went back to his wife in the Ukraine.

Peter was married at the time of going to America to Ulana 1891 - 1956. They married in Michalinok in 1911.

They had 4 children:

Tekkla 1912-1981
Basil 1924 - 1982
Ola 1928 - 1990
Zofia 1930 - 1985

I am Ola's daughter.

Here is the 01 September 1912 arrival of a man named Peter Lajter at Port Huron, Michigan, USA, mentioned earlier. Sadly, there is no information to help us know if he is "your" Peter.




=======================
I do not know if this is a family member for you. I will put this here for now. Later, I can delete it (if it is not your family).
