Looking for birth records of brothers Ezekiel and Max (do not know his birth name) in the Suwalki Gbernia of Poland/Lithuania in the 1869-1875 period. Ezekiel settled in Virginia and Max in New York. Can not find any documents showing their entry in 1894/1895. Have many records in the USA, with the exception of their entry. The Land brothers may be related to the Haskiel family in Vilkaviskis, Lithuania

Land sounds like an anglicisation of another name, or possibly a variation on a patronymic name. There is however, the surname Landa which can be found in Suwalki area. This may be your best bet.

Compared with other areas, there are not many records for BMD in Suwalki generally or the Vilkaviskis area, as this area was the front line in both WW1 and WW2, and so many records were destroyed in wartime.

Do you not have a surname on these men's naturalization records?
