JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Pilviskiai 1895 Fire Records #general
I am seeking any records of the fire in Pilviskiai (Pilvishok) in 1895.
On the kehilalinks page for Pilviskiai
last line of the "Jewish Settlement Till After WWII" section states
"Many names of Pilvishok Jews appear in a list of donors for Jewish
victims of fires in 1895."
My Great Grandfather, Charles Abe FINKELSTEIN (Yiddish name still
unknown) came >from Pilviskiai according to his naturalization
paperwork. He left in 1900 and would have still been there at the time
of this fire. He is said to come >from a large family of 10-12
siblings, though he came to America alone. I know nothing about his
family. I am wondering if this information might point me to him/them.
Thank you for your time.
