My ancestor Itsko SHUVAL (bc 1799) appears in the 1855 KOVNO (KAUNAS)
Real Estate Owners records as being the owner of house number 130 in
Kaunas. Interestingly, there is someone called Yankel Shuval who is
also listed as owning house number 130. Itsko and Yankel don't appear
to have been related on their paternal sides, and I suspect that they
may have been brothers-in-law, perhaps having inherited the house
from their father-in-law / father respectively. Does anyone know ifany inheritance papers / wills survive >from the 1820s / 1830s which
I might be able to access to shed any light on this puzzle?
