Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Draft Lists for Vilnius 1882-1884 #lithuania


Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

The Vilnius District Research Group has translated the conscription
lists for Vilnius for 1882 to 1884. For an unknown reason, 1883
conscripts are in a separate file.

Draft and/or Conscription Lists often include the entire family of the
young man who has been drafted. Many of these entries include the
street address where the draftee is living. Because there are not good
revision lists or family lists for this time period, the conscription
lists are a valuable resource.

We can only translate additional years if you help financially. If you
have a family history that an uncle was drafted, please join our group
so that we can raise the funds to translate all of these lists. Your
tax deductible donation to the Vilnius District Research Group of
LitvakSIG of US$100 will qualify you to receive the documents as soon as
we receive them, and approximately two years before they appear in the
All Lithuania Database. More details are on our secure website at:

A list of all surnames appearing in these files is freely available here:
