New files added to the Vilnius District Research Group of LitvakSIG #general
I have added two new files to the many now available to contributors to the
Vilnius District Research Group of LitvakSIG. The first is a Draft List
containing the names of merchants >from 1878. The "comments" column has a lot of
information about the person: who they lived with, their date of birth, in some
cases their address, the name of the school they attended, etc. There are 424
lines. The second file is a draft list >from 1908 and there are 2,125 lines of
information. If you would like to see these and many other lists that we have
translated, you need to contribute $100 to the group. That will give you five
years of access to our files on Excel spreadsheets and you can download them,
sort them as you want or just browse them. They will be put onto our "All
Lithuania Database", which is free to search, 18 months after they are
available to contributors.
If you are researching your family in the Vilnius area, please consider
contributing to the group. Just go to our site here:
https://www.litvaksig.org/ Along the green bar at the top, choose "membership
and contributions" then chick on "join and contribute". Select "Research
groups for Districts and Gubernias", select "Vilnius" >from the District menu
and you can type the name of a shtetl if you want to, but you don't have to.
Type 100 as the amount in US dollars. Press the "add to cart" button, and
then the "checkout now" button. When your contribution has been processed,
you will receive instruction about how to access our files.
