Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Me? A Litvak? #lithuania

Howard Margol

I have just received the Winter, 2010 issue of Avotaynu and an article on
page 41 caught my attention. Rony Golan describes, in vivid detail, how
records she found in the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database (ALD), along
with records she received >from the Kaunas archive, enabled her to solve
a family mystery and greatly add to her family tree.

One of the main keys that enabled Rony to make her discoveries was the
Lithuania internal passport records, 1919-1940. This is just one of many
success stories attributed to the internal passport project
