My Great Grandmother I have been told was born with the surname Sharonas, she is from Poland or maybe Lithuania. I was told she visited Rostov-na-Donu, Orsha and Smolensk as my Gran used to talk about it in Russian-Polish to my Aunty. I have not come across this surname before especially in the Baltic regions and I am wondering if anyone has any clue what may be the right spelling. I have also been told that her given name was Anna which I believe may be Ania but her given name is shown as Jusefa with married name Deksas on my Grandmother's birth certificate. The name Deksas or Dexsas (as I have seen it spelt also) is also a mystery and comes from my Great Grandfather Josef Deksas, whom I believe to be from Estonia.
Help! If anyone has any clues all information greatfully accepted. Regards Sonia :)
