Suwalki Province

The thick black line from Kalwarya to the southeast indicates a line north of which Lithuanians formed more than 50% of the rural communes in 1909.

The various shadings indicate the communes that were Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, or orthodox. The unshaded areas such as those around Wylkowiszki, Mariampolu, and Pilwiszki (spelled Wilkowiszki, Maryampol, and Pilwisz on this map) are not shaded and indicate that less than 10% of the population was Protestant. The southwest corner of Suwalki Province is now in Poland.


About suwalkigermans

I started family research in 1993. My first two books focused on my maternal grandparents. Both families came from Kreis Rosenberg, West Prussia, to Big Rapids, Michigan. I left the Spurgats from Wylkowiszki in the Russian Empire as the third book because of the difficult and challenging research it required. After I published the book in 2010, I wondered what to do next. I thought I might try to share some of my research with others and maybe at the same time, by going digital, someone would find me. When you read the comments, you will see that happened. The best part of all this is helping others.
