"A Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Lithuania" #lithuania


Congratulations to the JGS Great Britain for the publication of the
excellent "A Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Lithuania" by Sam Aaron
(sa@... ).

Sam is the coordinator of the Raseiniai District Research Group of the
LitvakSIG, and his personal research began even before the founding of
the LitvakSIG.

In addition to providing a wealth of more general Litvak research
information, Sam provides his own research as a highly informative case
study. He guides us through the sometimes confusing process of following
the paper trail of our ancestors, >from the 19th century all the way back
to the 1700s.

Sam provides a concise guide for the beginning, intermediate and advanced
Litvak researcher; a detailed description of the types of Jewish records
held by the Lithuanian archives, and how to use them; up to date information
for the most advanced researcher; where to search for your Lithuanian
ancestors on-line; tips on where to look for leads in the UK, USA, Israel
and South Africa.

It is an invaluable addition to all of our Litvak-libraries.

Thank you, Sam!
