Jacobsons in Latvia or Lithuania #lithuania
I am currently researching the family of my 2nd ggf Jacob (Jankel) Jacobson
(ca. 1860-1924). His father's name was Nissan. Oral family history
says that he came >from Dvinsk/Dinenburg. He married my great-great-
grandmother Jennie (Freyde) Levin around 1881. She was >from Zarasai.
On their passeger list to the United States, they and their children
listed their last origin as Kovno. They left >from Swinemunde and
arrived in New York, but lived in Philadelphia. There is no trace of them
in departure records. Likewise, because they came in 1891, there is no
specific town information in official American records.
I can find nothing in the online European records for Jacob Jacobson.
I have seen some records that may indicate a Jacobson connection to
Bauska or Aizpute. Does anyone have any knowledge of or relationship
to Jacobson families who migrated >from Latvia to Lithuania between the
1860s and 1880s?
