FamilySearch has added a significant number of digitized records to
its online collections. This includes the Jewish vital records for
Lithuania which were filmed many years ago. Please be aware that not
every record in the Lithuanian archives was filmed. Check the All
Lithuania Database for the Film
number which appears on the record for your family member and by using
the information on the database, you should be able to find the
original image. These records are not indexed on FamilySearch. On
FamilySearch, go to Catalog,
Type in the town name, then select Jewish records. If the images are
now available online, you should see a little camera symbol which is
the link to the images. These records have been databased by LitvakSIG
so use the All Lithuania database to help you find the record you are
looking for and the information of genealogical interest which has
been extracted >from that record.
