Sangamon County welcomed one ethnic group after another the last half of the 19th and 1st half of the 20th century but none that were going to make their mark more positively than the Lithuanians. The Lithuanian website provides a microcosm of the experience of most every ethnic group of the 19th and early 20th century. The wonderful part of it is that pride in heritage has resulted in this comprehensive picture of a people and is further enhanced by Sandy Baksys’ weekly blog with stories of people both ‘then and now’.
