Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Sienai Uyezd Internal Passports - Additional Explanation #lithuania


Howard Margol
 

The Sienai Internal Passports, 1919-1940, are not only for the city
of Sienai but for the Sienai Uyezd or district. Jews registered in
various towns in the district and those towns are included as well.
The major towns in the district where Jews registered were Sienai
(Sejny), Lazdijai (Lozdzieje / Lazdei), Kapciamiestis (Kopcheve),
Veisejai (Wiejsieje / Vishai), and Leipalingis (Lejpuny / Leipun).

95% of the Sienai Uyezd registrations were in those four towns.
The remaining registrations were in small villages in the district.
