Vilijampole History #lithuania

Jon Myers <emquad@...>

This week I heard back >from the Kaunas City Archives about my GERMAN
ancestors >from Vilijampole. This new information, combined with the
previously received data >from the Lithuanian State Historical Archives in
Vilnius, gives a fairly good picture of the GERMAN family in Vilijampole.
It goes back to one Baruch, who was probably born in the 1730's (his son
Abram was born in 1767). Is there someone who can tell me when Jews,
especially German Jews (their name was really HERMAN, but, of course,
spelled GERMAN in Russian) first came to Vilijampole and suggest a good
history (in English) to consult?
