Kaunas Family List 1858-1915 - A LitvakSig Special Project #general


Dorfleiv@...
 

The second of the 18 files which make up this project was recently
circulated. It covers the years 1858-1897 for the letters D-L (D,E, ZH,
Z, K,L) and contains 1124 lines of data. The wealth of information contained
is outstanding.
One of the interesting features of these lists that they sometimes tell
us where our ancestors came from. This particular file includes a significant
number of entries relating to people who came >from Zeimai to Kaunas.
The 11 most frequently occuring surnames are KIRKEL 18; LANKISKY
18; KATZ 19; DREYSHPUL 23; IVENSKY 26; KAPELIOV 27; LEVITAN 34;
KLEBANSKY 39; LEVIN 41;LEVINSON 44; KAGAN 82.

The third file will be available shortly. For further information contact
me at Dorfleiv@...
