Re: Births records for Memel (Klaipėda)from September 1874? #lithuania #records

Russ Maurer


The earliest birth records for Memel that I know of were recorded beginning in December of 1874. However, Memel birth records include some that were recorded on a delayed basis, and there are, in fact, half a dozen such delayed records for 1874 births. None of them have the precise date you are looking for, but still worth checking in case your information is not accurate. The records can be searched on as mentioned by Joyaa Antares, but I suggest you search in the LItvakSIG All Lithuania database ( because the extractions there are superior - they are more accurate, and they include the mother's maiden name, the father's occupation, and sometimes further information such as the death of a parent. For delayed registrations, in particular, Ancestry sometimes conflates the year of recording with the year of birth.
