Doing genealogy in the Marijampole area on the names Schlosser, Grygat, Ulrich, and Keilnischkeit (best guess on spelling). From records I have seen they were there by 1859 but suspect they were there earlier. Interested in the history of the Lutheran church of Marijampole. When was it founded? Is there still a Lutheran cemetery in the area? Did Lutherans first settle here in 1795 when in became part of Prussia or later?
