Familiy Research in Lithuania

Between about 1860 and 1950 a few persons emigrated from what is present Lithuania to Norway and other countries in the West. In the period from 1795 and until 1918-20 Lithuania was under Russian rule. 

Most of those who came to Norway earliest seems all to have been Jews. The Poles seems to have emigrated later, most of them probably in connection with 2nd World War. 

I have some experience searching Lithuanian, Jewish and Polish families here in Lithuania and all over the World. If you are searching families related to Lithuania and Scandinavia, please contact me or try yourself. Good luck!
