According to Hana Shaf-Brener, Oizer Namkind worked in a large bakery. He was married to Leah (nee Pres), the daughter of Bara-Zusa, who worked in her father’s bakery (as did Oizer?), which was used to prepare the town’s Sabbath cholent. The couple had two daughters, whose names we do not know, and a son, Bara-Zusa. Leah’s sister, Mina Pres, also worked in their father’s bakery.

“Jews in the Memory of Skuodas People” (see link on this page) records Eizer Namkind’s business under the heading “Canteens, tea-houses and patisseries” (19)

The Namkinds seem to have been relatively recent arrivals in Skuodas. In November 2013, a search of Jewish Gen’s Lithuanian Deaths database reveals only a Siman Namkind, son of Motel and Sore, who died in Skuodas in 1934, and Siman’s daughter Chana, born in Skuodas in 1907 (Internal Passport database).

As of November 2013, Yad Vashem provides no information on the Namkind or Pres families in Skuodas.
