Here are more possibly useful links to Lithuanian archives. They may
have records of land ownership, cadastral maps etc. for the period.
You would of course need to give them a starting point e.g. family
names, name of village and county, dates, etc. It is important to
narrow down their search by providing as much useful/relevant family
information as possible.
Try an email in English. I have had replies from emails in English.

The info is out there somewhere. Try punching words into google and
check the websites that come up. Also try archives in Warsaw who may
hold the records you are looking for.
Good Luck and stay with it!
