Jewish Names - Birzai, Lithuania #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>

I have come across the names of a number of Jews who lived in Birzai,
Lithuania, on Vilnius Street during the Holocaust. These were given to me
by some Lithuanian "Austra" high school students >from Birzai who are working
on a project about the Jews of their town.

I hope these are of interest to those of you who are researching your
families >from Birzai. Many of these names date back to the 1834 and later
records available for the shtetl in the All Lithuania Database. They also
can be found in the JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF).

At the present time, I have no further information on these individuals. It

survived the Holocaust.
