<< I am trying to track my family origins in Lithuania. The surname Miller
doesn't appear on any of the passenger lists coming into Canada at the
time my grandfather Nathan Miller (1865-1947) came in 1884 with his wife
Dubbie Phillips Miller, along with a brother Moses.
They obviously had a European name, which was lost (one uncle thought it
might have been Milarsky another Midlarsky but that gets me nowhere.>>
You are on the right track.
Try Milner and similar names; also Phillips for Dubbie's sibs.
