Alas...what a difference a day makes! A kind soul via one of the ancestry.com posts I left on a message board appears to have found the manifest for the individual we knew as Anna Trakimas. She is listed as Ona Trakimaviciute, arrived 11/23/1924, going to uncle Joseph Kazlaukas in Connerton PA, from dad Motejus (last name same as hers, incorrect as a maiden name) in Buktiniku LT. She was born in Stoneburn Scotland, but the family may have moved to LT at some point.
The similarities between the information we had obtained and the information that is offered in the manifest are many! So now my question is...where is Buktiniku (sp?)
Secondarily...the manifest reports that her cousin in Pennsylvania paid for passage ( a Joseph Kazlawkas) and Connerton, PA was her final destination. Was it common for people NOT to travel to where they had reported? Do to limited funds? Is it possible that she was taken in by other Lithuanians in NY or CT (which is where she eventually resided and raised her family) and just stayed?
