records from Vilna Poland
Posted by: Kim (ID *****4222) Date: January 23, 2006 at 19:03:10

My grandfather was born in Vilna Poland on 8-19-1909. When he came to America in Boston in June 2,1914 on the SS Caronia. His name on the ship's manifest as Jan. Supronowicz (10 months, even though that doesn't match the year of birth we know him as), his mother as Stefania Supronowicz (born +/- 1891) and sister, listed as Marina Supronwicz (born 1911.) I believe this is the correct manifest since he gave it as his arrival on his Naturalization certificate.

My grandfather went by the name John Francis Supronovich, his mother went by the name Stella and his sister by the name Mary, while living here in America. All listed as born in "Russia Poland" in the Census. His father was Frank Supronovich/Supronovich born in Poland etc. Frank arrived in America in 1913.

I'd like to locate the birth certificate of John Francis, especially with the issue of his name spelled so many different ways. How do I obtain a birth certificate in Vilna? How would I go about locating marriage certificate/birth certificate for Mary/Marina, Stella/Stefania or Frank? Any help would be appreciated!
