Searching for GRASIS, /BRUVERIS /Matulens,families from Latvia Bauska
by margret 12 years, 2 months ago
I am searching for my Latvian relatives.
The names GRASIS, BRUVERIS, also my cousins JANIS, DAINIS, and ZENTA. I have new information on these people.
My grandfather was JANIS GRASIS,( b 1875? 1950) my Grandmother was Alise Bruveris (b 1889? d1990?)Janis was a high ranking officer in the Army and a carpenter by trade. They were married in 1920 in Bauska Latvia. 3 children were born, fist boy died young, 2ns daughter Zentina Veronica, 3rd Julius b1925 August 15. The marriage broke down and
JANIS left to live on a farm and "married" a woman who already had 2 or 3 children. My father Julius knows that his father Janis was a high ranking Officer in the Army. This is all the information I have.
VERONICAs married a Janis Matulens She had 2 sons JANIS and DAINIS. She died giving birth to Dainis.
Son JANIS was killed as a young man by a drunk truck driver, date unknown maybe 1968
I know that DAINIS was married twice and that one of his wives names might be SANDRAS. Dainis has a daughter named ZENTA. Zenta ( Santa) married a Kirrillo and had 3 children. She is still living. I have since found my grandmothers family and am overjoyed, but none of them knew her 1st Husband Janis, ( 2nd husband maybe Silins)so I am still no wiser about my grandfather. I would love a photo of him.,
If any one could help me find my family I would be very happy.
