Lithuania declares its independance from both Russia and Germany on February 16, 1918.
And on my family tree?
I only have one event for today. It’s the birthday of the brother-in-law of my 2nd great grand uncle.
Joachim Jürgen Diederich EULERT is born on February 16, 1840 in Tüschenbek, Duchy of Saxe-Lauenburg, Germany.
He is the only known son (by now) of the day laborer Johann Jürgen EULERT and his wife Catharina Margarethe Wilhelmine RUNGE.
Joachim received his christening on March 1, 1840 in the church of Groß Grönau, Duchy of Saxe-Lauenburg, Germany. Two brothers of his mother were his godfathers.
And that’s it. That is all I know about him.
