I am looking for any help finding information on my ancestors before coming to the United States. Because of Lithuania's history im not sure how to find any information on them. Each document says something different. My great grandfather Benedictus or Benjamin Eliasz born 22 March between 1882-1888 depending on the paper in Resslince Russia(I have never found a place named that). But he always has said he was from Lithuania, never did he say Russia. He came over 10 Mar 1906 last known address was Warschau. He married in Ashland Wisconsin Michelina Szwedas also from Lithuania on 07 July 1914. From their marriage papers it says Ben's parents are Joannes and Moica Eliasz and Michelina's parents are Adam and Rosa Szwedas. From what we know they did know each other in Lithuania but Ben came first then Michelina once she finished school. Ben changed his name to Ben Allis and he died Nov 11 1967 in Loveland, Co and Michelina died Aug 28, 1948 in Ashland, Wi.
Any information would help.
