I just learned of an area called "Lithuania Minor" that was part of
East Prussia between 1795 and 1918 but was heavily settled by ethnic
Lithuanians. Most of it is now located in Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia,
with small parts also in Lithuania and Poland. I think there is a good
chance that a family I am researching has some roots there. I have
already checked (to no avail) the portions of this area that are now
in Lithuania. Are there records for the portion of Lithuania Minor now
located in Kaliningrad Oblast, including Kaliningrad and Tilsit
(Sovetsk), and if so, in what country should I look for them?

Thank you - Judith Singer
