Surnames: Valinchus, Valincius, Walinchus, Walne, Lauranovic, Lapelyte
My great-grandfather was John Valinchus who immigrated to the 1884. He was related to the Valincius (name changed to Walne)family of Worcester, MA.
Was Agnes Valincius related to the Walne family of Worcester?
Do you know how Agnes was related to other Valincius families in Connecticut:
George Valincius married to Agnes Lauranovic (and their son John married to Ursula Lapelyte); Antanas Valincius (1907-1985); Albinas Valincius (1916-1986); Martin Walinchus (1889-1982); Andrew Walincius (1887-1978)?

Dear Mr. Kapun,
Your great-grandfather John Valinchus- how exactly is he related to Martin Walinchus? I'm pretty sure I'm related to Martin but I'm not sure how. My great-grandfather, William Walinchus, I know changed his name at some point from Valincius to Walinchus to sound more American. Therefore, I'm assuming all Walinchus people are related to me simply because of the rare chance that anyone would have made up the same name. I was told, however, that All the Valincius(es) changed their name to Walinchus. Can you tell me more?

Surnames: Valincius, Valinch, Valinchus, Valincseus, Valinczius, Walinch, Walinchus, Walindczius, Lynch, Wallace, Walne, Wolyniec
I am only at the beginning of my research on the Valincius surname. By checking ships lists, census records, naturalization records, and marriage records, I hope to establish the relationships among the families with variations of the Valincius surname.

Valincius variations appear to include Valinch, Valinchus, Valincseus, Valinczius. My understanding is that there is no "W" in the Lithuanian alphabet, but that the letter "V" is pronounced like "W", thus other variations of Valincius would include Walinch, Walinchus, Walinczius. Add to that known surname changes like Lynch, Wallace, and Walne, and you have quite a task in sorting out the family relationships.

I am aware of the Valincius/Walinchus surname in Worcester MA; Fairfield and Hartford counties in CT; Allegheny, Luzerne, Montgomery, Northumberland, and Schuylkill counties in PA; Baltimore MD; Grand Rapids MI; Chicago IL; and New York.

Interestingly, the Connecticut Death Index for Martin Walinchus (1889-1982) shows that his father's surname was Wolyniec.

My grandmother (Agota KARALIUS) was also from Kalvarija and came to the U.S. in 1909 to Kulpmont PA where here uncle Charles KLOKIS/KLIOKYS was living. She worked as a family servant in Mt. Carmel PA (per 1910 Census) and then moved to New Britain CT by 1912.

Where in Connecticut and Pennsylvania were they?

I know she had relatives in Hartford and she married and settled in Minersville, PA. Did you have relatives in Minersville? My sister went to school with a Pachesis, the spelling may be wrong though.
