Thank you for your reply. It was very helpful. I knew we were somehow related to families in New Britain, CT. My older sisters went to gatherings there in their younger years before I was born. I assumed it was on the Urban side, but now I think it was the Gudinas side of the family, based on your comment. Was your father in the household of Peter and Anna Gudinas? Were they all from Suwalki? Peter is likely related to my grandmother (my father's mother)...her brother or cousin perhaps.
Thanks again. Lori
