Got Ship Manifest, Naturalizations, Now What? #general


S. Harris <jewishgen@...>
 

I'm trying to trace my family back as far as possible. In the
instances where I have obtained an ancestor's naturalization and ship
manifest papers, what is the next step? Obtaining records from, in the
case of my Litvak relatives, the Lithuanian archives?

If so, how much information do I need in order to be able to do
that? And how do I know the records exist, that they are in Lithuania
and that they are not in Poland or Russia (as my ancestors' homelands
borders changed within their lifetime?

Thanks,
