My gr-gr-grandparents JOSEPH STANALAW CASPERON SYRUNOWICZ and BENIGNA STANISLAWUNA SIEMIONOWICZ were born of noble families in Russia. However they owned a large parcel of land in Lithuania, Kielmy, called "Goniprowo". It is believed the land was a gift from Peter the Great.My gr-grandmother always insisted that she was Polish, though American records show her to have been born in Russia. I do believe some of her siblings were born in Poland however.
If anyone has any information on these families (or ther non-American descendants) in Lithuania, Poland, or Russia, it would be greatly appreciated. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
