My genealogical research on the family names Martinkus and Sauka from Lithuania. 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.
Martinkus - this is the original variation of my maternal grandfather's name. The family eventually shortened it to Martin, and most of the records located in Massachusetts use Martin as the last name.
