Morris & Leba Bresky Wolk #lithuania


David Wolk
 

My research to date has yielded little but I remain committed to finding information on my Lithuanian great grandparents(born circa 1850) and their ancestors.  Their family may have lived in or near Petkuny, Lithuania  They had six or seven children, all save possibly one, who emigrated in the early 1900s to either South Africa or the U.S.  My great grandmother, Leba Bresky Wolk, emigrated to the U.S. in 1908 on board the vessel 'Korea'; she traveled alone but her documentation indicated that one unnamed child remained in Lithuania.  There is no information available about her husband Morris.  Leba died in 1913 and is buried next to her brother and sister in Hudson, New York. If there is anyone on this site who had relatives living in Petkuny during the period 1880-1905, and who may have found a reliable source of information on that community, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it.

I took a quick look at my family tree and I didn't see anyone with the names "Morris & Leba (Bresky) Wolk" (nor similar).

I do have family with the "Walk/Wolk/Valk" surname variants, but I'm not sure (though it's always a possibility) of any relation to anyone in my tree.

My 3x Great Grandfather is "Itzig (Isaac) Shneier Walk/Wolk/Valk" and was born Abt 1840 in Wilkomir, Kovno, Kauno, Lithuania.

I'll keep an eye on this... :-))
