Re: Searching for Brom/Braun family in Lithuania #lithuania

My Brown/Brin/Brunn/Braun or similar ancestors came from Vishtinetz now Vistytis in Lithuania, but then Wiestyniec in Suwalki Gubernia in NE Poland. The name allegedly comes from the city of Brno/Brunn, now in Slovakia.They went in waves to Edinburgh, Scotland between 1868 and 1872, mostly in 1870, during the Baltic famine.
