KRIEGERS FROM LITHUANIA #lithuania
I AM SEARCHING FOR SOME RECORD OF MY KRIEGERS FROM LITHUANIA.
Hirsh (age 15), Chaime (18), Ester (15) and Chame (10) arrived at Ellis between 1904 and 1906, as did their parents, Yankel (53) and Muse (48). They all went to their brother and son, Morris, who apparently arrived earlier (I could not Morris in the Ellis Island data bank). They all list Ramigala or Ponewish as their last residence.
I can not find any evidence clearly attributed to this family in the 1897 Russia census (Lithuanian Jews).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Here are the JewishGen pages to read more about your two towns, including the modern and alternate town names:
Panevėžys [Lith], Ponevezh [Rus], Ponevez [Yid], Poniewież [Pol], Ponewiesch [Ger], Panevēža [Latv], Panevezhis, Panevezio Velzis, Ponavezh, Ponevetz, Ponivez, Ponowitcz, Ponyevez, Pounivez, Punaviz
Ramygala [Lith], Remigole [Yid], Remigola [Rus], Remigoła [Pol], Ramygalos, Remygala, Ramīgala
Try searching KRIEGER (use a phonetic or soundex search, as names have variant spellings in the records.)
Do one search with surname and one of your town names, and repeat search with the other town name.
For instance, a very quick search found an 1898 record that KRIGER "Registered in Ramygala; lives in Novosiady since 1875"
Good luck in your search,
