When 'First contact' is being made, always by E-mail, the first question to be asked is: 'where did your ancestors come from?'. Everyone, no exception, replied 'from Russia' or 'from Lithuania'. Upon further request the following towns keep popping up:Vilnius - Kovno - Paberze - Ivenets - Minsk - Daugavpils
