"Genealogical research in Lithuania is often difficult because so many of
the old records >from Czarist times (1794 to 1917) were lost or destroyed.
Here is a practical guide that will tell you what types of records there
were, which have survived for each of the three provinces that Lithuania was
divided into, how to access them, and what information you can expect to
find.

Archives often take a long time to reply to researchers because of the large
number of enquiries they receive. The guide describes the large amount of
information that can be directly accessed in on-line databases, or in
databases which are made available by e-mail to subscribers, and provides an
up-to-date list of all these resources, and should help you make quicker
progress with your researches.

For beginners, the Guide explains how to identify your ancestral shtetl (the
small town in which Jews were obliged to live), how to start off your
research, and eventually find information on your ancestors. Included are
also suggestions as to where you can look for clues to your ancestors in UK,
USA, Israeli and South African records. The latter section should be useful
also to those researching their roots in Eastern European countries other
than Lithuania".

The Guide is available from: JGSGB Publications, PO Box 180, St. Albans,
Herts. AL2 3WH, England, U.K. or via our web-site: www.jgsgb.org.uk
