Be careful, it may not be _quite_ this easy. This is not the only
possibility.

Enough confusion has been caused in our family among members who are from
the Schirwindt Michael cites, which I believe was across the border from
Kurdirkos Naumiestis in Lithuania (Naishtat). They would rather the family
had been >from Germany proper, Berlin preferably, and have adopted one of the
others as their birthplace, especially since one of them had a lovely
write-up in the NY Times Travel Section some time ago.
