I am researching my family's heritage in Lithuania. Since Lithuania has been under the occupation of Russia at various times in its history, should I be searching for FHC records under "Lithuanian" or under "Russian" record? In other words, would family records be categorized under the country name as we know it today or under the country name during occupation?
