1. My ancestors lived in Vishnevo, Oshmiany, and Devenishkes--all in the
Oshmiany uezd but two of the towns are in Belarus today. Will the
Vishnevo and Oshmiany records be in
the Lithuanian State Archives?
Based on what information I have >from the FHL, they have completed the
filming of vital records in the Vilnius Archive for areas that were part of
Vilna gubernia. At there
is a list of vital records >from areas now in Belarus that have been filmed
by the FHL and are available through your local FHCs. As you can see, there
does not appear to be any records >from the shtetls you want. There are
other records that might help you in your research: Revision Lists. Please
check the All Lithuanian Database. Some of the information you are looking
for is there. JewishGen is working on the technical issues that will allow
searching of shtetls that were in different countries so they can be
searched >from more than one All XXX Database. This will make research
easier for all of us.
