Voldemar Gutmanis 1881-1972 was my grandfather. He lived in Dzukste, Tukuma rajons, Latvia. He married Elsa Blumfeld 1891-1945. There were 13 children. Egons, Edmunds,Ludmilla,Elita 1924 (my mother), Leons 1925, Nansija 1928, Arturs 1929, Aina 1931, Gundega 1934, Eriks, Talrits, Biruta, Valija died 1967. I made contact with my mothers family two years ago and we went to Latvia to meet her three sisters and two brothers and many cousins who still live there. Nobody seems to know what happened to Egons or Ludmilla if any of this means anything to anybody I would love to hear form you. Visu Labu Rose

Surnames: Gutmanis
My father's name is Ansis Gutmanis. He was born in Ventspils in 1912. He had 5 sisters. His parents were Fricis Gutmanis and Zenija Mazutis. Fricis had a brother (I dont know if more than one), named also Ansis. My father fighted at the IIWW and emigrated to Brazil in 1949. We are not sure
about Fricis father's name: maybe Matiss or Osvalds. Maybe he could be a brother of yours Valdemars Gutmanis. I know that Fricis and Ansis went to USA in late 19th century, started a shipyard, but after some years and 2 daughters, they went back to Latvia.

I know that my father, after some years in Brazil, intended to go to Australia. Maybe he knew that there was a relative of him.

Just these days I got to know about Margers Gutmanis, born in Latvia about 1900 or even earlier, and worked as Geology engeneer. About 1930 he went to Argentina and later to Brazil.

Kind regards,

Daina Gutmanis


PS: I live in Piracicaba city, at São Paulo state - southeast of Brazil.

Thank you Daina for the information - I will ask my relatives in Latvia if my grandfather had any brothers. Diverting from the subject I see that you live in South America. My son is there at the moment and is travelling from Salvador to Belem to take a boat trip on the Amazon. He has a friend in Brazilia who he will be visiting later on this year! Have you been to Latvia?
