Another group of Taurage District internal passport records, 1919-1940,
has been translated and is now available to researchers. This makes a
total of 1,026 records that have been translated.
Normally, a $100.00 contribution to LitvakSIG would be required in order
to receive these records. Taurage is in the Raseiniai District and, if you
would like to also receive all of the other types of records for the entire
Raseiniai District, another $100.00 contribution would be required. However,
through a cooperative effort initiated by Sam Aaron, Coordinator of the
Raseiniai District Research Group (DRG) and me, you can receive not only
the Taurage internal passport records but all of the Raseiniai District
records as well for the same $100.00 contribution. This constitutes a 50%
discount and I am sure you would like to take advantage of this one time
Go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute. Be sure and specify your contribution
is for the Raseiniai District and for Taurage I.P. records. The site is
secure so you can use your credit card. As soon as Sam is notified of
your contribution, he will make all of the records available to you.
Important - do not ignore these 1919-1940 records because your ancestors
left Lithuania in the late 1800's or early 1900's. Researchers have found
many records of their ancestors in these internal passport records. Your
immediate family may have left but, in many cases, their brothers and
sisters as well as other family members remained.
