Note: groups.jewishgen.org will be down for maintenance on Monday, September 26th, starting at 9AM Pacific Time (4PM Monday September 26, 2022 UTC), for approximately one hour.
I will be in Vilnius, Lithuania for a month for the Vilnius Yiddish
Institute and hope to get a chance to go to the archives and do some
research. The two towns that I am researching, Dunilovichi and Glebokie,
both have census data that is held at the Vilnius Archives. I am interested
in whether anyone has done research at the Archives. I've contacted a few
researchers, but am thinking about doing some of my own research if the
archives are accessible. I can work my way through Cyrillic Russian, albeit
slowly. If anyone has been there, I'm interested in whether you had earlier
communications with the archives prior to your visit, if you have an e-mail
address that works for the archives(I have one that apparently doesn't)and
if they let you photocopy records or at least take a photograph. Also any
costs that are assessed if you are there in person doing your own research.
Alternatively is there a researcher that you recommend who will work with
you while you are there?
