Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Internal Passport Database Update #lithuania


Howard Margol
 

In the next several weeks, after the JewishGen servers have overcome all
of their problems, a number of additions will be added to the Lithuania
1919-1940 internal passport Database. In addition to more records >from
the city of Panevezys, the entire file of applications for the city of
Jonava will be included in the database.

Work is continuing on translating the Panevezys files and the translation
of the internal passport applications for the city of Kaunas is already
underway. Estimates are between 17,000-18,000 files are included in the
Kaunas records.

In the near future, I expect to receive a list of all of the other cities
and towns in Lithuania where Jews applied for an internal passport during
1919-1940. Before the project is completed, as many as 200,000 records
could be included in the database. The value of these records are, and
will be, of great value to researchers.

For full information about internal passports, to search the database,
and instructions on how to support the project please go to -
