True Lithuania

is creating Encyclopedia/map of Lithuania and Lithuanian heritage abroad




per month


True Lithuania creates the largest English website about Lithuania ( ) and the online encyclopedia of Lithuanian heritage abroad ( ), as well as the interactive map of Lithuanian-American heritage ( ).

Currently, the websites provide extensive neutral infromation about all things related to Lithuania as well as about Lithuanian heritage in 30+ countries.

True Lithuania is entirely created by Augustinas Žemaitis, who researches and visits the Lithuanian heritage sites in person, photographs them and writes down the stories told him by local Lithuanians. In these expeditions, he is joined by Aistė Žemaitienė.

Most of the expeditions to Lithuanian sites abroad have been funded by Augstinas's and Aistė's private money. Unfortunately, some expeditions are very costly and the projects are entirely non-profit, so True Lithuania team is very grateful for additional support.

All the money collected on Patreon will be used for Lithuanian heirtage research expeditions.

Next expedition on our plan: Canada (~2019 September-October).

Past major expeditions: Latin America (2019), USA Midwest (2018), Kazakhstan (2018), USA East Coast (2017), Australia (2015). There were also many smaller expeditions to Lithuanian sites in the nearby countries (Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Latvia, Bulgaria, etc.).

All the results are available at and you may also follow us on Facebook at .
