Genealogy travel in Lithuania?

Jump to last reply

(This is cross-posted from the Lounge; I'm interested in anyone's experiences in genealogy travel, but particularly Lithuania/Eastern Europe.)

I'm seriously considering a trip in either 2012 or 2013 to Radviliskis, Lithuania, to see if I can trace the family back any further then 1895 (when they left.) But I'm not really sure the best way to go about this: try to find a tour guide who will be able to translate, check in with the Lithuanian-American societies that seem to abound, try to learn Lithuanian between now and then... :) Okay, that one's not happening. I've actually been to Lithuania before (and had a marvelous time) before I was fully aware of the connection.

Anyway, I'd love to hear anyone's experiences in this. I realize it won't be like the "Who Do You Think You Are" show, or "Everything is Illuminated" <ahem. Hopes not, anyway.> but it is the most logical next step. I have contacted a few people in the travel business in Lithuania, but no responses yet. Another complication is that it's possible that he was Russian or Polish and living in Lithuania, as the incarnation of the name that we have doesn't seem to be Lithuanian--or, well, anything else, either. He listed himself as both Russian and Lithuanian at different times, and Russian-Pole at others.
