Latvia town sounds like "crook"? #latvia

Thanks for conserving our history. My grandmother did not talk about
where she came >from other to say it was a town in Latvia called "crook"
and they were all crooks. So I'm looking for a place that sounds like
crook. She was born in 1896 named Fannie Schwartz. Her father was Jacob,
mother Hannah (Anna)
I appreciate your help.
Thanks,
Joan Goldstein

Hi Joan,

"Crook" is most likely Kriukai which is in Northern Lithuania very close to
the Latvia border.

Hoping this helps you with your search.

Or even Krok, the Yiddish name for Kroki in Russian or Krakes in Lithuanian,
a shtetl NW of Vilna.
