personal Jewish heritage. You require a JewishGen that's committed to
finding and presenting projects that ensure a win/win situation.
"Published by JewishGen" is just such a project. You've told us by your
enthusiastic response so far that "Preserving our Litvak Heritage...A
History of 31 Jewish Communities in Lithuania" by Josef Rosin was the
correct book to launch this new project.

devoted exclusively to one of the 31 Lithuanian communities, a list too
lengthy to mention here, but a visit to the JewishGenMall will identify
them for you.

40% discount, but only up until April 30th, and only through the
