Re: How do I access the actual image at the Lithuanian historical archive #lithuania

Hi.  You may be able to get a copy of the record from a volunteer at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City.  The seven digit number in the far right hand box indicates it has been filmed, and provides the film number.  If it was underlined, you would be able to click on the number and access the roll of film.  There is no line (no link), so you need to request it.  If you were able to look at the film yourself, the 6 would indicate that it is the 6th item that was photographed on the roll, an item being a set of multiple records.  1848 is the year of the record.  It is record # 48 for that year, which will help you find the item on the page when you receive it.  I took a JewishGen class from Nancy Holden, who thinks that records cost $5 each.

I don't know if you can access the Lithuanian archive records directly, but I do know the Lithuanian Archives also has researchers, as a cousin of my husband's worked with one prior to a research visit to Lithuania. I don't know what the breakdown numbers mean for the Lithuanian archive.  Presumably, it explains where the record is stored in the library.

Hope you are able to get it!
