My 6th Great-Grandfather, Movsha Tamshe from Vilkija, Lithuania

I just discovered my 6th Great-Grandfather, Movsha Tamshe from Vilkija, Lithuania on the Nemanus River.

Carol and I drove along the Nemanus on our way back from the Baltic Sea towards Kaunas.  We visited a few town and villages as this is where our guide's Grandmother lived all of her life. She was a righteous Lithuanian gentile recognized by Yad Vashem.

I found him while looking at a Census Record for his son Iosel Tamshe. When adding records into Ancestry, some times people in the notes aren't recognized by the program and don't get added to your tree. Now I get to go back to my Census records and see who else I can find.

Iosel was born in 1766, so I guess Movsha was born in 1745 +/-
