Did Russia Shapiros come from Lithuania? #general

After perusing the Shtetl finder list, I found so many Shapiro families
originating >from towns in Lithuania, that I am even more convinced that my
ancestors on the Shapiro side who lived on the Russia/Belarus border in
Surazh and who were Lubavitchers, must have originated up north in
Lithuania, with a branch moving down to Russia/Belarus for business
reasons. It was probably my great-great-grandfather or his father before
him. I wonder how many other Shapiros, even >from Lithuania, were also
Lubavitcher chassidim....
