New Vilnius Foreign Passports File Received #general


Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

As you should now be aware, the Internal Passport project has been completed.
We must acknowledge Howard Margol z"l when discussing the Internal Passports.
Howard discovered these files on one of his trips to Lithuania, about 15
years ago. He also coordinated the translation project >from inception until
illness forced him to step away in 2015.

Our sincere thanks to MyHeritage for their financial support in allowing the
completion of the translations of the Vilnius Internal Passports.

We are now translating a collection of Vilnius Foreign Passport Applications.
These files are on the **Data** page of the Vilnius Internal Passport Shutterfly
website.

The new file contains 782 records, registration #s JU45236-JU45679. Thus far
we have translated 4,104 lines of Foreign Passport data.

We thank MyHeritage for their support allowing us to begin translation of these
Foreign Passports.
