I am having trouble with determining the correct surname spelling for my grandfather. On almost every document, including those from Churches, the names have been spelled different. Examples: Mike Versieckis, Mateus Varsackas, Michael Matthew (Matus) Varsackas, Wersieckis, Verseckas, Varsoki, Versocky, Atari, and so on. On each document, I have determined by the extraneous information given that matches my ancestor, that each person is my grandfather.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can tell which surname is correctly spelled?
How would I contact anyone from Vilnius, Lithuania without the correct spelling?
I have deepened my research in Ancestry DNA matches. There are hundreds of matches from 4th - 8th generation, but no matches as1st - 3rd generations. These are on my father's side of the family. On my mothers side, Robinson, I have found literally thousands of close matches.
