One Reply to “Lithuania”

  1. My great grandfather, Michal Chablowski was born in Panevezys in 1886 according to his passport. He came to Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1906 from Riga, Latvia. It is said his father had a government job and Michal uses a Russian passport. We are looking for any other family associated with Michal from Lithuania before he lived in Riga.
    In Riga, he was shot in a church and left for dead; his friends were killed. His father got him out of the country and to friends/relatives in Chicago. My great grandmother came one year later to Chicago and they married in an orthodox church in Chicago in 1907. We would love names of mother and father and any other family.
