genealogy and sightseeing in Lithuania

Jump to last reply

We have about two weeks at the end of May to explore Lithuania and do genealogical research in Kaunas. My mother-in-law emigrated to US from Balbierskis near Kaunas; my father-in-law's parents were probably from near Kaunas. We are not sure. The family is Catholic but I plan to check the JGS as recommended in a previous post.

Would a translator be a good idea? How would one go about that?

Are there any special locations--villages, cities, parks, coastal areas--you love and think we should see?

An advice on restaurants and/or shopping?

Thanks so much. Ellen
