Congratulations to LitvakSIG and Russ Maurer for receiving the
prestigious Rabbi Malcolm Stern Award for the Vilnius
Household Registers project. This collection includes over 13,000 Vilnius
household registers containing millions of lines of detailed
information about Vilnius residents and visitors to Vilnius during the
interwar period.

Russ Maurer made the official announcement of the project to a rapt
audience at the LitvakSIG luncheon on 7 August 2018 during the IAJGS
Conference 2018 Warsaw. Russ is Project Coordinator for the VHR and
Coordinator of Records Acquisition & Translation. Detailed information
can be found at

The Stern Grant was awarded to LitvakSIG and Russ last night at the
Gala Dinner of the 38th IAJGS International Conference in Warsaw.

LitvakSIG thanks the Rabbi Malcolm H. Stern Grant Committee and the
IAJGS for their generosity.
