No title[edit]

The unfortunate need for Polish editors to inform the readers of Eng-Wiki, what the Polish names for Lithuanian cities is, is not necessary. If they feel that it is necessary to do so, they can begin by adding the Lithuanian names for Polish cities to the Encyclopedia first. Ukmerge was not part of Poland during the interbellum. Once again, Rome is not Rzym, in English, Warsaw is not Warszawa, and Vilnius is not Wilno. Thank you. Dr. Dan 01:32, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi Viduka, perhaps you disagree with me. But, the Polish name has a link in the other languages section, if one needs to "know" the Polish name for the town. Dr. Dan 03:43, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

There were not one, but two nuclear bases in the vicinity of Ukmerge. They were not of type Dvina Complex (four silos and a command bunker, like Plokstine), but surface launch pads. The two bases each had 4 surface launch pads – correctly for R-12 missiles (also known as SS-4).

If you own the rights to those pictures, putting one in would IMO be a nice addition. Novickas 22:10, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Kozlovsky[edit]

Josef Ozhis (Kozlovsky), Lithuanian landowner. How famous he was? Is it worth to mention him in the wikipedia? Orionus 10:24, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

I have not heard about him, "the Goat" :) Iulius 22:09, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

Citation[edit]

When the germans invaded they rounded up and killed 10,000 of the towns Jews. How about some kind of citation for that statement? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.191.31.112 (talk) 05:50, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

I've checked this in several encyclopedias and indeed there seems to be a discrepancy. Watch the page for updates. -- Deborahjay (talk) 13:22, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

A snapshot from 1891[edit]

Just found "Description of Vilkomirsky uezd", in Russian, compiled in 1891. Curious! 33 MB, 54 pp.. NVO (talk) 04:35, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
