My name is Karin Amoils
and I started this site.The Festenstein family originated from Marjiampole/Lithuania. Part of this large clan relocated to Poltava in the Ukraine/Russia mid-19th century, before emigrating to England and South Africa in the late 19th/early 20th century. A few members emigrated to the United States.
