History of the Protestant German Settlement in Lithuania Post 1

In January, February, and March 2013 the following posts included translations of several sections of Bilder aus der Geschichte des evangelischen Deutschtums in Litauen by Hermann Jaekel, published in 1964. These excerpts were part of a series of posts from var8ous chapter of my 2010 family history book, The Three Spurgat Families form Wylkowiszki and were included as background information for the reader.
The subject of each post is embedded in the last part of the urls below.
Although the above posts do not include a word for word translation of the contents, a full translation is available.
A second look at this resource in 2018 had resulted in five additional posts containing translations of other sections of this book to provide information for researchers.
I thank my translators, Pauline Utzinger and Irmgard Heim Ellingson
I have used both the book and the film. As of this writing in January 2018, the film has not been digitized.

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.
