Subject: RE: Is Lovis Corinth of Lithuanian descent?

I have read many books and seen church records with surname records. And I know there was no and not exists a Lithuanian surname like: Korinėtojas or Kopinėtojas. Because to this day a beekeeper should have universal knowledge and be able to do many things and not restrict only to collect honney or cripple. A Lithuanian surname Bitininkas (means Beekeeper) do exists, also exists female surname Bitininkienė, i.e. his wife. But such Prussian Lithuanian surnames not existed because were created with different suffixes, would be something like Bitininkeit or Bitineit. Therefore surname Corinth in no way could be Lithuanian or Prussian Lithuanian origin. The beekeper who knows only how collect honney from a hive would be bankrupt long ago. I.e. there were no reasons to appear surname from only honey-collecting activity.
