Martinkus was my maternal grandfather's birth name. Sauka was my maternal grandmother's maiden name. They immigrated to Massachusetts from the village of Luokė, in Telšiai County. This site documents everything I've learned on this life changing expedition.

Sauka An Austrian Name
I did my DNA profile with Ancestry in 2014. Part of the analysis said that the name Sauka is largely an Austrian name. Does that mean I may have ancestors in Austria too? Cool to think about!
