One more lithuanian demagogizm if you want. Eastern, western balts - what a problem? gives near to 40 placenames as a result to query "Bart". Most of them were places, inhabited by refugees prussians barts, escaped invasion of teutones.  

Are you sure? Bart- could be from bartininkas, some kind of bee-keepеr who keeped bees in a tree.

Later they were lithuanized and became ancestors of many of nowaday lithuanians. So these can claim prussian land Barta as homeland of theyr ancestors, exactly the same way, like some germans do. 

Wow! Let's think this way, but there were more times prussians who were germanised and even became prussians. So this logic won't go! By the way, bartians were settled near Volkovysk and other teritories which are in todays Byelorussia.
Sorry, but it is impossible to return 700 years back. There is no state that claims teritorries that were (if were...) part of it in middle ages.
Don't you think also, that such massive migration to the Wildnis was a kind of Nostalgie-Tourismus? 

This theme is not very studied, lots of reasons were. Large density of populataion in Samogitia, rebel against serfdome in 1418, not clear border.
