I don´t know the exact words but I mean the centuries. The Pyragas/ Pierach came about 1550-1600 into the region of Insterburg and about 1870 into Memelland, my Szillis came about 1800 into Memelland.

The catholics in the Insterburg-region changed to the lutheran religion mostly in the 2nd and 3rd generation because it was more pragmatic to have the "german" religion.

My Szillis stayed catholic and changed when they married a lutheran or a calvinist wife.
