On the JRI-Poland site, there's a good bit of pre-1826 Jewish vital
records available, under the heading of patronymic data. These
records, for the towns listed, seem to be extracted >from Catholic
records. As far as I understand, Jewish vital records were intermixed
with those of the Catholics, >from about 1808 onwards.

Do the towns in Lithuania have a similar wealth of data? For example,
the ePaveldas site has a large majority of the Catholic metrical books
from Lithuania digitized. Would it be worth looking in those books,
for Jewish records? Or is this something that was only done in
