Internal passports database #lithuania

What percentage of Internal Passports have been stored in the Internal
Passports database? Is it possible that there still may be large amounts
of information in the archives not yet transcribed? >>

About 50% of the internal passport records have been translated so it
will require about $50,000 in contributions for the remaining internal
passport records to be translated. Even if the necessary funds were
available right now, which is not the case, it would take at least 2
or 3 years to translate the remainder of the files.

Of the internal passport records that have been translated, about 70% of
them are in the database. Translated records are added to the database
12 to 15 months after I receive them. To receive the internal passport
records as they are translated, a $100 contribution is required for a
specific town or district. To contribute, go to and
click on Become a Contributor.

have been translated. Not all of these records are in the database as yet.
