LitvakSIG is proud to announce that a new file has just been added to the Vilnius District Research Group. It's the Vilnius births index,1915-1938 and it consists of 21,202 lines.
This file is only available to qualifying donors to the Vilnius District Research Group. A donation of $100 will give you access to all the files on our site in Excel format, for a period of five years. These files can be downloaded to your computer and you can search them in various ways, by first name, last name, year, town, occupation, etc. and you can also browse the files. After approximately eighteen months, this file will be freely available on the All Lithuania Database (ALD), as are over 2 million records that we have translated to date. By donating to the Group, you are also helping us to find and translate new records. If you would like to donate, please see this page on the LitvakSIG website:
Click on "research groups for districts and gubernias", then select the district from the drop down menu. You do not have to select a shtetl, but you may want to. Then put 100 in the 'amount in US dollars' and click on "add to cart'.
We are very grateful to our main volunteer translator, Dorothy Leivers and to Margaret Fullarton for their painstaking work. Grateful thanks also go to Aron Raszkiewicz who donated images for 1924-1938.
