Two other Spurgat families lived here: Matylda Spurgat, born in 1878, August Spurgat born in 1879, and his brother Otto Spurgat born in 1880.
We traveled directly from Pilviskis/Pilviskiai. A large sign announced that the 10th anniversary celebration of the community council, (like the one the local guides in Virbalis and Gudkaimas were in charge of) was being held. Our guide explained that the residents elected these local officials but that their role was advisory.
Since this was a private party, we elected not to interfere with their festivities. All the homes were well kept with gardens, flowers, and TV dishes. We wondered whether this property had been made into a collective farm during the Soviet occupation as none of the houses dated to a pre-Soviet era.
