GRASIS/ BRUVERIS FAMILY
Posted by: margret mcpharlin (ID *****1637) Date: August 10, 2012 at 23:01:43

i HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR MY MISSING GRASIS/BRUVERIS lATVIAN FAMILY FOR 10YEARS.
i KNOW THAT MY FATHER WAS BORN IN BAUSKA IN 1927 AUGUST 25.
THEY LIVED IN BAUSKA UNTIL MY FATHER COMPLETED HIS YEAR 12 SCHOOLING. JUST WHEN THE RIGA MOVE HAPPENED I DO NOT KNOW.

Jānis Grasis (1875-1950) was Margreta’s (i.e., Aina’s) grandfather. It’s not known where he was born. He was a carpenter, and it is said he was a major in the czar’s army. He married Alīse (who died in 1990; her maiden name, date and place of birth are unknown; it is thought that she was a Baltic German.) Jānis Grasis and Alīse lived in Rīga on Vārpu street, but divorced during Latvia’s first period of independence. They apparently had 2 children: Margreta’s father – Jūlijs, and Margreta’s aunt Veronika Zenta Grase. Veronika was born in the 1920’s and died in childbirth in the 1960’s when her son Dainis was born. Veronika earlier also had a son named Jānis. Veronika Zenta Grase’s married name is unknown. Margreta’s grandmother Alīse raised her grandson’s Dainis’ daughter – Zenta. Zenta’s surname is unknown. The last contact between Margret’s father and his mother Alīse was either in 1980 or 1990. (See Latvian language translation below.)

Latvian translation of the data: Jānis Grasis 1875-1950 bija Margretas vectēvs; nav zinams kur viņš dzima. Jānis Grasis bija galdnieks, domājams bija virsnieks cara armijā. Salaulāts ar Alīsi (mirusi apmēram 1990.g.; meitas vārds un dzimšanas gads un vieta nav zinams; it kā ir domājams ka viņa bija vācbaltiete). Jānis Grasis un Alīse dzīvoja Rīgas Vārpu ielā, bet šķīrās laikam Latvijas laikā. Laikam bija 2 bērni: Margretas tēvs, Jūlijs un Margretas tante Veronika Zenta Grase (dz apmēram 1920’os gados. – mirusi 1960’os gados kad dzima viņas dēls, Dainis. Veronikai arī bija dēls – Jānis.) Veronikas Zentas Grases laulātais vārds nav zinams. Margretas vecmamma Alīse uzaudzināja Daina meitu - Zentu. Uzvārds nav zinams.) Jūlijs ar savu māti sarakstījās līdz 1980. vai 1990.gadam.
