A note of caution when discussing PLUNGE, POLANGEN, PALANGA.
Plunge was in the Telsiai District and Palanga was in the Klaipeda

20 miles apart. Many records for both Plunge and Palanga still exist
In the Lithuanian archives. However, I would be surprised if records
for Plunge exist in the Riga archive.
