Maybe a bit hit and miss, but my ancestral area near Punsk - Kalvarija, village called Radziske, there is an old German cemetery. If you're interested in German history in the area, might be interesting place to visit. Local call it Pruskapiai - Prussian cemetery, we used to play there as kids. Surviving gravestones had Gothic inscriptions. I was there few years ago, please looked cleared up and some stones restored with names. Some locals also have quite unusual sounding names - Anzelis, Rentelis, Birgelis and so on, a bit Germanic sounding to me.
