There’s only one ‘I’ in Lubinskas

I just found out that there are people in this world who spell my surname not LIUB but LUB - crazy. All these years I have had my name miss spelled, and now I find out that some people actually spell it that way.

Some of them look to be big political figures in the USA. See page two for the article on Swartzenegger.

Interesting.

    Actually there are several different spellings of Lubinskas. The “Liub….” form is the original spelling in Lithuania. It was “Americanized” several different ways when people came through Ellis Island. Even people with the name “Lubinski” or “Lubinskas” could have been people who’s original spelling from the old country was “Liubinskas”. For whatever reason many people just automatically pronounce my name as “Lubinski” even when they’re looking right at it. I’m used to it after many years of hearing it.

    Hey Peter Lubinskas, I think I know your brother Jeff doe he have a boy named Joey? We’ve been trying to get ahold of him, so if it’s the same jeff and u could give me a contact to get ahold of him I would really appreciate it. My husband was on the same ship with him in the Navy and they were good friends.

    Wow, I wonder when the ‘i’ got dropped. I guess it’s a bit easier to spell.

    I’m looking for information on a man from Lithuania named Ernie Lubinskas who served with my Dad in the US Army in World War 2. (His name is mis-spelled on my dad’s website as Lumbinsksas). Ernie was the gunner in their half-track and my dad was one of the loaders. Both my Dad and Ernie were wounded on April 12, 1945. Ernie was severely wounded and may have died from his wounds. Ernie’s name doesn’t show up in the casualty lists from my Dad’s unit. We think this is because Ernie may have enlisted under an assumed name, due to some immigration difficulties. (Ernie came to the U.S. right after the Soviets invaded Lithuania in 1940.) We think Ernie may have enlisted from Pennsylvania. Any information about Ernie would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
