Lithuanian Ancestors in Scotland

Posted: 22 Jan 2013 7:11AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Dubickas, Kaiminskiute, Balkeen
I am trying to get any information that might help me in tracing my Lithuanian ancestors. Juozas Dubickas was married in Mossend in 1907 to Mare Kaiminskiute. Mare sadly died and he married her sister Agota Kaiminskiute in 1912. He is listed on 1911 census as a coal miner living in Bairds Square, Holytown, Lanarkshire.
I believe he left Scotland somewhere between 1917 and 1918, there was a family story that he was killed trying to liberate Lithuania from the Russians. I also have noticed that some of his children have started to use the surname Balkeen, and wonder if anyone would know why this might be (is this in someway related to the white army).
Any help in researching these ancestors would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Lisa
