Congratulations to the JGS Great Britain for the publication of the
excellent "A Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Lithuania" by Sam Aaron
Sam is the coordinator of the Raseiniai District Research Group of the
LitvakSIG, and his personal research began even before the founding of
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!
