Berta Spurgat, daughter of August Spurgat, was born on January 15, 1908, in Schelmu. Vilius thought, “Most probably Schelmu is the same as Selviai. Now there are 2 villages of Selviai: Didieji Selviai (Big Selviai) and Mazieji Selviai (Little Selviai).” I agreed with him as I noted its proximity to Iskarty/Iskarti where the August Spurgat family may have been living at this time. (Four reasons: 1) Iskarty/Iskarti is close to Didwize/Didvyziai where August was born. 2) The family was living there until the late 1920s according to the great grandson of August. 3) Anna Raudonat, mother of Berta Spurgat, was born in “Szelwy community Wolkowyszki” on January 1908. 4) Big Selviai is also in the correct place when I compare locations on the 1932 Polish map and the online Lithuania map.
The fact that Szelwy/Big Selviai (Mazieji) is close to Wylkowiszki/Vilkaviskis made me realize that trains must have been rather common for there to be this fine railroad station far removed from the center of town. Its construction date is unknown.
