LitvakSIG is pleased to announce an update to the free, searchable,
All-Lithuania Database. The new records include the following:

-In the marriage category, a total of 532 records >from Jonava
(1922-1927), Seredzius (1844-1884), Vandziogala (1928-1939), Shchuchin
(1897-1914), Vasilishki (1897-1900), and Zashkevichi (1871-1872).

-In the passports category, 1,948 applications for a foreign (travel)
passport filed in Vilnius during the interwar years, when Vilnius was
part of Poland.

-In the tax & voter category, 2,370 records of Holocaust victims
extracted >from the book, Holokaustas Ukmergeje (Holocaust in Ukmerge).
We thank the Vilna Gaon Jewish Museum and the author, Neringa
Latvyte-Gustatiene, for permission to add this material to the ALD and
for assistance with the extraction.

All of these records are searchable at
https://www.litvaksig.org/search-ALD/. They will appear in the search
results under the category listed above. An update to the revision
list category was announced previously. This announcement concludes
the current round of updates.

LitvakSIG is an independent organization that raises its own funds and
determines its own activities. As always, we are grateful to our
donors and translators, without whom we could not make these records
available. These records were available exclusively to our donors for
about the past 18 months. To learn how to support LitvakSIG's work and
gain priority access to new translations, visit our website,

The ALD and the LitvakSIG discussion group are hosted by JewishGen.

Happy hunting!
