Do you have any reference to Joseph Yuknis, son of Veronica Ambrosaite and Joseph Yuknis of Lithuania and Illinois and then Wisconsin. I have some Yuknis who married Laurinaitis, Juszkaitis and Pukis (Pukis changed to Perkins later) families. Is there any connection?

Do you have any more info on Juszkaitis. My husband's last name is Uzitas (which has changed several time over these records). His aunt tells me the original name started with JU. I can not find immigration records since I do not know the original last name. Any hints you may have would help. Thanks Victoria Pardo Uzitas

Victoria,

Best way to find the original name is to start from what you know and work your way back.

The 1930 Census is the latest one available. Is your husband or his father old enough to be listed in that census? if so, keep moving back every ten years until you find the ggrandfather and see how he is listed and see if he was the one who emigrated from Lithuania. Just takes time.

Don't give up yet.

Where was your father-in-law born in 1946?

So did Sylvester come to the U.S. before the start of WW II or did he come to the U.S. after 1945?

I've had been challenges that I've been able to overcome with persistence and a bit on ingenuity.
