The VRI project is looking for volunteers to do some data entry. This work
is limited to the following towns:

Birzai
Cekiskes
Jonava
Joniskelis
Krakes
Pakruojis
Ponevezys
Pasvalis
Plunge
Pusalotas
Rumsiskes
Seredzius
Telsh
Trakai
Vabalninkis
Varniai
Veliuona
Viliampole

Prerequisites for this work include the following:

1. Willingness to read neat Lithuanian script, correctly account for
diacritical marks, and enter the data into an Excel spreadsheet

2. Excellent familiarity with Jewish given names and surnames and
interpreting Lithuanian spelling of same

Another requirement we are looking to fill is for someone interested in the
city of Vilna who can read Cyrillic to perform data entry similar to that
outlined above. This list is more current than the vital records and in good
handwriting.

Interested parties should contact me directly.
