Chicago Krost's originally from Kedainiai
- Amongst the 4,300 birth records that have been distributed to qualified
donors by Olga Zabludoff, coordinator of the LitvakSIG Kedainiai Vital
Records project, are those of two KROST brothers, Gershon son of Leib
and his brother, Shmuel son of Leib. Their mother was Mere (Rokhel
Mere) bat Shlioma (Shlema) Yakir. Yakir is the double half of a given
name, not a surname. Can someone who is related to KROST please tell
me the surname of Shlioma Yakir (in other words, Mere's maiden name)?
Gershon and Shmuel KROST later immigrated to America and became Harry
and Samuel L. CROST, respectively. They are buried in the Kadaner Unt.
Verein plot at Waldheim Cemetery in Chicago.
Note that I am not related to this family.
