JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Lithuania/Vilna History Recommendations? #general

Steve Axelrath <saxelrat@...>

I have been able to document, with research done for me at an archive in
Vilna, that one and maybe two branches of my family came >from Vilna and
the surrounding countryside. I'd like to learn more about the history
of Lithuanian Jewry, and perhaps Vilna in particular (one great
grandfather was supposedly a cohain and the other was a rabbi). If
anyone has a book to suggest about this area and its history, I'd
appreciate it. Has anyone read "The Litvaks: A Short History of the
Jews of Lithuania" by Dov Levin? Do you recommend it?

Thank you, Ellen Silon
