I want to tell you about my grandmother. It is only in so far as my grandmother remembers.
My grandmother’s maiden name is Kaszyce, her name is Antonina, but she could be called otherwise. She was born in 1883 in Ancevičių village (as far as I know then it was Polish territory). She had a brother, who was a few years younger. My mother does not remember his exact name, but she said it could have been Cyprian. When he was about 20 years old, he moved to America (at least he told so).
When he left, my grandmother was already married (her name become Dziczkaniec) and she already had children. My grandmother does not remember the exact number of children, because many of them died being very young. Now, they all are dead. What remained, are only few grandchildren, one of them being my mother.
Before the Second World War, grandmother received letters from her brother. He had been working in lumber mill. During the war letters stopped coming. After the war we were living in Lithuania, which became a part of Soviet Union. No more letters came. Mom told us that our grand grandmother often remembered her brother.
I do not know whether this has anything to do with your grandfather, but I decided to write. I don’t know how to write in English, so I asked to translate.
Sincerely, Renata Geglis
