from Sharkovshchina to Shkuntiki #lithuania

The query about a Family List asked why a person living in Shkuntiki
village in 1888 was noted as "registered in Sharkov JC, lived in the
village >from 1868."

"The permanent place of residence should not be confused with the
place where one resides. The first is a legal concept; the other, an
actuality." The Jewish Community is the place where a person belongs,
similar to the modern concept of nationality, no matter where one is
living.
