There was once a man named Hirsch Glass. Born in 1911, he was >from
Subacious Lithuania. In that same year, his father Jankel Glass went
to New York USA intending to send for the family once he established
himself there. Sadly he died shortly after arriving in NYC.
Hirsch Glass, during the Shoah most likely was interned in the Kowno
Ghetto, then sent to Dachau, which he survived. In 1949 he and his
wife Esther and their young son Jankel moved to Australia. They had
a daughter in Australia named Bela, and through Jewishgen, Bela
contacted me. We believe we are cousins. We are looking backward
in time to find the common ancestral link, perhaps one generation more,
the father of her grandfather Jankel Glass >from Subacius.
We have received some passport application records >from the archives
in Lithuania. Most of them are quite short. Is there anyone who
would favor this project with some translation help? The records are
in Lithuanian. Grateful thanks in advance to anyone willing to help out.
Please respond privately.
