Re: "es" at the end of Lithuanian Surnames #general

I am certainly no expert on Lithuanian, but please remember that Vilna
in Lithuanian is now Vilnius-and everything else including names seems
to end in -s. So I would suspect that your thought might be right on.
Drosnes might be Drosen or Dreisin or something similar without the
Lithuanian -s ending.

Of course, we only can guess and try to come up with evidence why our
guess is good or not. Do we find a relative? Do we have a place of
origin? Until we have a lot of good records of the family, it is only=
one hypothesis or another.
