Subject: Internal Passport Database Question

One of the many questions I receive regarding the Lithuania Internal
You have to write a letter (email will not be acceptable) to the Central
archive in Vilnius. Send them the information >from the database and it is
o.k. to tell them you found it in the database. Because of the 100 year
privacy law, be sure and tell them your relationship to the Trapido
person(s). If not a relative, they may not send you the information.
Mention that you would like to receive a copy of all documents that may be
in the file for that person rather than ask for one specific file. The file
may contain documents you are not aware of. They will respond and tell you
the cost for the documents. Their response will be written in Lithuanian.
They speak English but, by law, their letter has to be in Lithuanian.
