I am doing research on my family. I have found recently that my family name was spelled "stumbris" in lithuania. My grandfather Adam was born in 1909 and my grandmother Helen was born in 1911 her maiden name was Budris. I am having a hard time finding anything. I do know my great grandfathers name on my grandmothers side was Kazimier Budris. I am new at this but would really like to find out more about my heritage. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi -

You can start out by gathering what you do know about your family. Were Adam and Helen the generation that came over from Lithuania, or had it been their parents? Do you know if they had brothers and / or sisters? Yoou can find information by looking up where they lived on the various censuses, who else was in the family, and even who applied for citizenship. Where did they live when they came to the US? A few things to start with...

Hi Jennifer -

From my research into the name Zujus, there were two areas in which this rare surname can be found. One was in the Preinai region, and the other (which is where my lineage came) was in the Kaisiadorys (?sp) region near Kaunas. I recall reading that your grandfather was a writer and published a newspaper, and his relations were connected with the Zujus families from Preinai. I have not found a specific connection between the families from the two areas, but given the relative rarity of the surname from a relatively small country, I suspect there may be a connection. An expert on Lithuanian surnames once told be that the name came from a nickname, and depending upon the ultimate origin could mean either one who ruminates on things and acts slowly, or one who moves about quickly and nervously. I suppose depending whether I am on my first or second pot of coffee in the morning, either could fit... ;)
