I'm looking for ideas on breaking through a brick wall.
My great-great-grandfather's sister, Khana Sore FAINSHTEIN, married Yankel
Mordkhel MERKEL in Vilijampole, Lithuania in 1874. They had a son, Shimon
Borukh, born in June 1875. After that, there are no more Lithuanian records
I can find for them, though there are plenty for Yankel's father, Shmuel
Itsko, and his other children.
My best guess is that the family emigrated. I haven't found them in the
Kaunas passport issuance files, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything
as those only appear to go up to 1875.
The brick wall is, of course, that I have no idea where they would have gone
and MERKEL is a common enough name that searching various records is tedious
at best. Any thoughts on the best approach for digging into this?

Let me offer two suggestions.

First, the JewishGen Family Finder
(http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgffweb.asp) lists one researcher for the
surname MERKEL >from Vilijampole whom you may wish to contact. Adding an
entry to JGFF for this branch of your ancestry may attract other
researchers.

Second, a search of Ancestry.com for public member trees with the exact
surname MERKEL and the exact birth location of Vilijampole shows three trees
that you can browse and whose owners you can contact through Ancestry.

I have found that many Jews >from Vilijampole emigrated to South Africa or
South America, and these are hard to trace in general, but my suggestions
may hopefully yield some leads or contacts.

Re: Searching for a small village near Szrensk #poland

In a record >from Szrensk recording a death taking place in 1846,
the person noted was recorded as residing in Smulni at the time

Smulni did not have its own record keeping.
-----------------------------

Joe,

It appears that Szrensk records have been deposited mostly in Raciaz, and
some also listed in Plock, Mlawa and Drobin.
Since there are no villages or settlements sounding close like "Smulni" near
Szrensk, you may consider names of villages that are located a bit farther
away >from Szrensk , ie

Smolino (Near Bielsk [Plock]),
Smolen (Poluby) near Pszasnysz
Szumanie near Drobin

And please revisit translation
