Is this
research group
still up and running? Could someone please advise me how to
proceed?

The Panevezys Research Group was formed and began operating in July of
1998 for the purpose of raising money with which to purchase and
translate the 1858 Panevezys Uyezd Revision List. Some funds have been
raised, and many attempts have been made to locate and purchase these
records. Unfortunately, we have not been able to obtain this particular
list, and are currently in the process of evaluating alternative records
that are available. We will be offering the options to the
contributing membership for their determination. Many box tax, candle
tax, and family lists for various individual towns and shtetls in the
Panevezys Uyezd are available, and it seems certain that we will be able
to obtain many useful records for the latter part of the 19th and early
20th centuries.
If you wish to join financially in this communal effort, please let
us know. We will keep you apprised of developments.
