yes his surname is clearly Lithuanian ( at least the – “avicius”part of it ) which is my ancestry and, curious about his background as he was described as French and Jewish, I came upon your site while trying to find out more about him. My grandparents were lucky enough to leave and emigrate to the US in the early 1900′s; his evidently went to France. Your amusing remark about a Jewish battalion in the Roman army is not so far off the mark: “Lithuanian still retains many of the original features of the nominal morphology found in some ancient Indo-European languages like Sanskrit and Latin, and has therefore been the focus of much study in the area of Indo-European linguistics.” Anyway, congratulations to Michel and PS I enjoyed reading/learned some things from your site. Thanks!
