Re: My paternal great-grandfather Ben PRESS from Vilkija or Seredzius #lithuania


Hi Ben, I haven't had much luck searching with Jewish Gen, Ancestry, Family search & My Heritage etc, but I have done my DNA with Ancestry & uploaded it to FamilytreeDNA & Gedmatch. If you are working with any one of these, maybe we can do some cross referencing ?
My paternal G'G'father Harris (Gersh) Press lived in Siauliai, Lithuania unknown DOB, DOD. My G'father Nathan Press DOB 1876-1928 born in Siauliai.
My G'G'mother was Esther Press, nee ? wie of Harris, died in London, England in 1911. It seems that they all immigrated to London, England abt 1898 except Harris Press, deceased.
Nathan married Betsy Tarutz 1897/8 before leaving Lithuania.
My problem has been searching for Nathan's siblings, or other members of that family. I suspect that there were other members immigrating with Nathan & Betsy Press
because Esther Press died in London. I cannot find hard evidence of any other members ? 
About my DNA, I have thousands of "relatives", like most people, but I don't take that seriously. What I find interesting is the nationality of some of my closest matches.
I am 100% Eastern European Jewish, centred around Poland, Lithuania , Germany & Belarus. Probably too much information.
I hope that's not too much of an overload Ben.                  Regards...........Bernie Press (Sydney. Australia)
