Portrait of Andrew Kapochunas

Andrew Kapochunas

Founder LithuanianMaps.com United States

My interests are history, especially the history of Eastern Europe, and the cartography of Europe, especially that of the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, 1569 - 1795. I have had published articles on historical maps, and on the German occupation of the Baltic states during WWI. I have built, and maintain, two websites: my personal site: http://lithuanianmaps.com/ and http://www.newyorkmapsociety.org/ where I am a board member, Secretary and Webmaster. The society's name reflects the area in which we meet, not our focus -- we focus on all areas of the world, in both historical and contemporary cartography. We are partners with, and meet at, the New York Public Library -- whose map curator is also on the society's board of directors. I am also a member of the Lithuanian Cartographic Society: https://www.facebook.com/Lietuvos-kartograf%C5%B3-draugija-356614113381/ and represented the country of Lithuania this past July in Washington, DC, at ICC2017 -- an international cartographic conference: http://icaci.org/icc2017/
