Even if you don't think your family lived in Vilnius, they may appear in
the household registers as visitors. And of course, many people who
lived in Vilnius during the period of the registers (between the World
Wars) had their origins somewhere else. Many other locations are
mentioned in these registers. It is worth taking a look.
The batch will be added to the free, searchable, All-Lithuania
database in about 18 months.
More information about the VHR project and about each batch to date
