|Blake Allison Andrews (Bergner)||RE: Hi Blake|
My grandfather was the only Andrukaitis man in my family I have ever know of - and he passed away before I was born of a heart attack. He died at the age of 69 and I understood he had a series of heart attacks previously before the last one claimed his life.
|Blake Allison Andrews (Bergner)||One more thing...|
Do you know who your Anthony Andriukaitis' father's name was? Just curious.... My Anthony (Antanas) had four brothers, Ignotas (Ignatius) Andriukaitis, Jonas (John) Andriukaitis, Kazimieras (Casmir) Andriukaitis, Tamosius (Thomas) Andriukaitis, and a sister, Ona (Anna) Andriukaitis.
Looking at Al Andrews picture as a young child, wow, he looks a lot like my dad as a young child. Could be pure coincidence, but very similar.
|Blake Allison Andrews (Bergner)||RE: Andriukaitis|
Hi John, I've actually heard that Andrukaitis is pretty common in Lithuania. My great-grandfather's name was also "Anthony/Tony" and I recently discovered that the Lithuanian name is Antanas. His wife, my great-grandmother's name was Antanina. I do not know the Lithuaian version of Elizabeth for your great-grandmother.
Still not certain of a connection here, but as I've discovered in genealogy, anything's possible!

Hi John, I was searching Find-a-grave for any Andriukaitis/Andrukaitis surnames. My grandfather also passed away before I was born and his name was Vladas (Walter) Andrukaitis (dropping the "i" after the "r" at some point) and ironically, we changed our last name when I was a young child from Andrukaitis to Andrews. My great grandfather's name was Antanas (Anthony) Andrukaitis also. He was born in Lithuania in 1863. I don't believe he came to the USA with his son, Vladas - my grandfather. At any rate, just wanted to share my similar story with you. Best wishes. (Ms). Blake (Andrukaitis) Andrews.

"Hi, I saw you added a memorial for Katherine Andrews recently. She was my aunt
and I was wondering if you knew her. Thanks for adding a memorial for her.
Sorry John, I did not personally know her but if she is your aunt I would be pleased to transfer management to you. Family should be with family =). Let me know if would like to take over.
