Ancestry Maps


Lithuanian ancestry map The ePodunk map shows U.S. cities with the highest percentages of people of ancestry. Learn about cities with genealogy and find in-depth community information about the ancestry cities.


The first major migration of Lithuanians to America started in the 1860s and continued until World War I. A second, smaller movement occurred after World War II.

In the 2000 census, 659,992 people in the U.S. claimed Lithuanian ancestry.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 3 percent of those people said they were of Lithuanian ancestry.

The links at left lead to information on other ethnicities.
