Lithuania SIG #Lithuania new genealogy ebook on JGSGB #lithuania


Arlene Beare
 

I have updated my Guide to Jewish genealogy in Latvia and Estonia and it
is now in ebook format. I must stress that this will be of use to researchers
not only >from Latvia and Estonia but elsewhere in Eastern Europe. There is
a brief chapter on Sources in the UK and with one click you can go to the
National Archives. I have a brief Introduction to Genetic Genealogy and
one on Social Media with links to sites with a more detailed explanation.

This is the first ebook published by JGSGB (Jewish Genealogical Society
Great Britain) who will benefit >from the sales. There are a few copies in
print format but we wanted it to be mainly published as an ebook. The second
edition of my Book was in 2006 and many telephone numbers and addresses
of Archives have changed as well as Internet sites and email addresses
which means that the second edition is now out of date. These have all been
updated. There is information on Passports both Internal and External.
The book contains the excellent chapter written by Nick Evans on Emigration
detailing how our Ancestors got to other Countries >from Latvia always
remembering that many Lithuanians may also have sailed >from Libau now
Liepaja.

in pdf format and easily navigable.
