Another 317 Vilnius internal passport records have been translated and are
available. So far, a total of 6,485 Vilnius internal passport records have
been translated. A grand total of 111,289 internal passport records have
been translated covering most areas of Lithuania.
The Vilnius I.P. records include some very important information, including
where the person was born. Not everyone was born in Vilnius.
Some of the information included - German passports issued during World
War II, Mother's name, Marriage certificates, and most important, Birth
certificates issued in the early 1920's. Due to the 100 year privacy law
on birth records, we are not allowed to translate post 1912 birth records.

of the documents in an individual file, and they will send it.
