Gelis family who moved to Finland #lithuania


Alison Greengard
 

Hello,
If anyone has any information on a Gelis/Glass family who moved to
Turku,Finland >from Lithuania, I would appreciate it if you would contact
me privately.

Wulf Gelis/Glass was born in Ukmerge, Lithuania, is buried in Turku
in 1875, son of Zalman. He is listed as absent >from the tax rolls
of Ukmerge after 1875. Historical Finnish newspaper records also
show Tobias, Kaarlo, and Juha Gelis in Finland. DNA mtDNA ancestry
on the Gelis/Glass side of my family indicate some Finnish heritage
as well.

Thank you,
Alison Greengard
