Re: Records in the Lithuanian database #lithuania

If you examine the microfilm records many of the Litvak records were translated from, you'll find that LitvakSIG translated virtually all data shown. The data filled in on the forms answer the questions on the form, usually no more. The Polish records, in many cases, were written as entire paragraphs and as such, the scribe may have included many more details.
