According to Hana Shaf-Brener, Feiga Mendelson lived in Shkud. She had two adult children, Yehuda, who made and/or sold ice cream, and her divorced daughter, Mari Lutvak (nee Mendelson).
Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Tax and Voters Lists has an entry on Feyga Mendelzon, daughter of Notel, dated 1914. At that time she lived in Skuodas and worked in a drapery business. An Itsyk Menedlzon [sic] is listed in the same database as a shop owner in 1892.
Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Marriages database notes that Yudel Mendelson, son of Itsik and Feige (nee Rabinovich) of Skuodas, married Ester Perski in 1931. Yudel, aged 34, was a merchant. His wife was from Kaunas.
The Lithuania Deaths database notes that Itsik Mendelson, son of Shomas and Base, of Skuodas, died in 1923, age 57. Feige Mendelson, daughter of Notel and Mere Rabinovich, died in Skuodas, age 62, in 1930. Only Yehuda Mendelson is listed in Jewish Gen’s Yizkor Book Necrology Database. I could find no mention of Mari (Mendelson) Lutvak on Jewish Gen.
