Varshavchik House in Kaunas #lithuania


Mark Strauss
 

I found an amazing online site today that included a photograph of my
great-great grandfather's house in Kaunas, Lithuania; which was built
in 1866.

According to the site, "F. Varshavchik’s house was built for the
Jewish merchant Faivuch Varshavchik. The design was drawn by Simon
Gorskij. The construction work was never completed: once having
started to build a large warehouse-barn the owner must have run short
of funds to complete the residential premises. In 1990, the house was
restored."

The daughter of Faivuch Varshavchik was Chaia/Golda/Ida Varshavchik,
who married my great-grandfather Emanuel Markel/Merkel >from Keidainiai,
Lithuania. They immigrated to Boston in the 1890's. I would be
interested in hearing >from anyone else connected to this family. I'm
especially interested in finding the family name of Faivuch's first
wife, my great-great grandmother.
