Lithuania Internal Passports - 1919-1940 #general

Howard Margol

If there is any possibility that you had ancestors living in Lithuania
during the 1919-1940 period, I suggest you search the Internal Passport Database
on Jewishgen -

In reviewing the translated records as I receive them I see many instances
where an individual applied for their internal passport in a different town
than the one they were born in or lived in. Example: a female who was born, and
lived in Jonava, was not included in the Jonava internal passport files. She
applied for her internal passport in the city of Kaunas. Looking for her
passport in the Jonava records will not bear fruit. Even if the internal
passport files for your town or village has not been translated as yet, you may
still find success in searching the database.

In early January, 2006, almost 4,500 translated records will be added to the
internal passport database.
