Lithuania has a very complex postal history, reflecting that the country have shifted between being in "possession" of other countries, being independent plus all the local and occupational issues etc.
This interesting story can be traced by the postmarks as well - thus Lithuania deserves a tread for postmarks and forerunners
Here is a few examples on forerunners for the Klaipeda (ex. Memel) area, which was annexed by Lithuania some years after WW1:

I am definitely interested, and will need to take a look through my Lithuania holdings when I am back in the US over the Christmas holidays. That is one of the downsides of my living and working in France--no regular access to my collection to check for things like this.
I will need to start a philatelic to-do list for my vacation!
You are probably right, René (renden), which is why some of the projects will simply be laying my hands on certain items and bringing them back to France with me to work on in the New Year. Sorting and cataloguing Hungary is one possibility, but I need to see what other projects are on the list, then I will decide how much I will have time to do.
I think that my Christmas will be pretty low key this year in any case. I need some relax and recover time after several months of tiring, full-time work. I have a good job, and in general I like it, but it takes a lot out of me. I am really looking forward to the break.
