I visited Lithuania in September last year (2016), and managed to see the farm (Sakalupis) and parish church (Vladislavov, now Kudirkos Naumiestis) where my family lived. It was a fantastic experience. As a boy, I never thought I'd ever know anything about my Lithuanian forbears, so it pays to keep trying!  :)

Let's hope we can connect our Simanavičius families.

I did some searching in Scotland's People for my family names in the hope that brothers and cousins had also migrated to Scotland. Of course, spellings can vary enormously, and many changed their names to English ones (e.g. many in my 'Zinkevičius' family adopted the name 'Fletcher'). I think I did find ones that might have been 'Simanavičius', but discounted them at the time. Might look again.

1. CRAIG – Littlejohn, Norwood; BROWN – Pinkerton, Wyllie.
2. McKAY – Brown, McMeekin, Flynn; ŠUGŽDA – Melnikaitis, Klimaitė, Vidrinskas & Zinkevičius.
3. SCHRODER – Kumm, Kluth, Metzker; EDWARDS – Finch, Shorter, Wright.
4. GALT – Barr, McColl, Littlejohn; FERGUSON – McKerrow, Hardman.

Just noticed a post on the Bothwellhaugh Facebook page which may be of interest to HeatherWalsh.
It is an extract from St. Brides parish magazine with notifications of marriages. One of the marriages is a David Hindman of 14 Roman Place marrying a Jane Anderson of 5 Haugh Place on the 9th July but does not state what year.
