According to Hana Shaf-Brener, Alta Shpilg and her family lived in Shkud.
According to Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Marriages database, Olga Shpilg, daughter of Girsh and Ete of Skuodas, age 37, married Mausha Lif, born in Vilnius to Abrom and Tsile, in 1935. The following year, Olga Lif (nee Shpilg), age 37, a dressmaker, daughter of Girsh, born in Skuodas and living in Kaunas, applied for an internal passport.
According to Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Deaths database, Ette Shpilk (nee Kan), daughter of Yosel and Leya Kan, died in Skuodas in 1927, aged 71. Perhaps Ette was Olga’s mother? Even if so, the relationship between Olga Shpilg and Alta Shpilg is unclear.
As of November 2013, Yad Vashem provides no records on a Shpilg family in Skuodas, Lithuania, or in general. I was, however, able to find information on Mausha Lif:
Mosze Lif was born in Wilno, Poland in 1897 to Avraham and Tzirel. Prior to WWII he lived in Kowno, Lithuania. Mosze was murdered/perished in 1942 in Kowno, Ghetto. This information is based on a Page of Testimony submitted by his brother. http://db.yadvashem.org/names/nameDetails.html?itemId=373020&language=en
Misha Liff was born in Wilno, Poland to Abraham and Tzirla. Prior to WWII he lived in Kowno, Lithuania. During the war he was in Kowno, Lithuania. Misha was murdered/perished in the Shoah. This information is based on a Page of Testimony submitted by his uncle. http://db.yadvashem.org/names/nameDetails.html?itemId=1166143&language=en
