Perhaps potential users of these dictionaries should be alerted
to differences in the alphabetic order of letters in Lithuanian.

Thus the letter 'y' is inter-alphabetized with 'i',
so that a name beginning 'Ky-' will occur before a name beginning 'Ko-'.
On the other hand, the letter s with a wedge on top, signifying 'sh'--
is alphabetized after 's'.

Thus a name Sakiai --Yid. Shaky, will occur after all names starting
with 's' --Suvalkija, etc. There are numerous web sites that give the
Lithuanian alphabet in its correct order:
