Wolk Family of Lithuania #lithuania


Judith Berlowitz
 

To David Wolk:
I thought I’d pass this information along to you:  I’ve done some research on a family with a similar name (Volk/Volkas, even Wolk), from Lithuania.  My main focus was on Bernard Volkas, whose tree you can see on geni.com. If any of the birth towns listed in his family tree coincide with yours, it might be worth investigating.  DNA would probably be the best way; I’m in touch with Bernard’s son (though I’m not guaranteeing that he’d be willing to do it!).

I did not see David Wolk's earlier post, but here is my Wolk family outline, draft form,  from Lithuania.   I would be glad to join in some group discussion.    Judy Russell, Brookhaven, GA.   judith.f.russell@...
