I believe the postal system of Lithuania would have been created after the war,
when independent Lithuania came into existence. Before that the postal system would
have been either Russian or German occupation mail.

from the other resources I found during my creation of my time line, I noticed
that very often the dates conflict and when preparing a military chronology it
may sometimes be difficult to be exact.
Lithuania as part of Russia would have been using the pre-Gregorian calendar, while
the Germans used the Gregorian. Thus there would always be a discrepancy of dates
depending on whether battle information came >from German or Russian sources.
Russia adopted the Gregorian calendar only after the October Revolution (1917)
which actually took place in November (Gregorian).

This is also particularly true as the battles or conflicts may have stretched over
several days or the fighting may have gone back and forth even over a day's period
In 1981 I was taken through a museum put together by local high school students in
Liepalingis, which displayed artifacts they collected >from the trenches of WW I,
which passed through nearby. Thus there were areas where trench warfare went on
not just over days or weeks, but over months.

Hi Robert,

Have you tried looking at the registers of the Jews Temporary Shelter, which was
based in the Stepney area? Contact details will be available via Google. Just a
chance they might have stayed there for a few days.

They had only been allowed to leave Vienna with seventeen shillings, so finances
would have been very tight. I'm wondering if they had to pay for accommodation;
or if a refugee organisation in Britain might have financed it.

Genealogical Service at the National Library of Israel #general

Dear JewishGenners,

Re: IIJG promoting a Genealogical Advisory Service at the National Library of
Israel.

The International Institute for Jewish Genealogy (IIJG) wishes to announce that a
Genealogical Advisory Service is scheduled to open in the middle of April 2013 at
the National Library of Israel in Jerusalem.

Some time ago, IIJG proposed the establishment of a fully-fledged Genealogical Unit
at the National Library (where IIJG is housed), similar to such units at the
Library of Congress, the National Libraries of Ireland, New Zealand and elsewhere.
The Library was receptive to the proposal but, as a practical matter, could only
see it coming about in the Library's new building, which is still in the planning
stage. In the interim, therefore, it was decided to launch an advisory service to
address the growing number of genealogical inquiries >from visitors to the Library.
The service will be available two days a week and will be staffed mainly by
volunteers >from the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA), backed up by
professional staff >from the Library itself. Besides responding to specific
questions, the service will offer advice to family historians and others on how to
set about their quest and also where to find relevant materials and collections
in the Library and elsewhere, in Israel and beyond.

The service aims to be fully operational by April 15. It plans to start work on a
"running in" basis >from the middle of February

Director (ret), IIJG,

World War I - Lithuania #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

Recently, I decided to create a military time line for my ancestral shtetl of
Kupiskis regarding what transpired during World War I. Since many of the Jews
were sent to the east during this time period, it was interesting to see what
was happening in their shtetls whilst they were gone. By happenstance, I found
a site one would not ordinarily associate with military information. It
was "Lithuanian Philately" http://lithuanianphilately.com/postal-history which
listed numerous towns and what transpired there during the war. In addition to
the stamp material or other photos shown, the site discusses the creation of the
postal system at that time.

Some of the shtetls discussed on the site are:

Ariogala, Baisogala, Gargzdai, Gruzdziai, Kaltinenai, Kavarija, Kazlu Ruda,
Kelme, Kraziai, Krekenava, Kretinga, Kupiskis, Kybartai, Laizuva, Linkuva, Luse,
Lydavenai, Marijampole, Naumiestis (Sakiai), Naumiestis (Taurage), Nemunelio
(Naujas) Radviliskis, Pagiriai, Pakuonis, Pilviskiai, Raseiniai, Rietavas,

from the other resources I found during my creation of my time line, I noticed
that very often the dates conflict and when preparing a military chronology it
may sometimes be difficult to be exact. This is also particularly true as the
battles or conflicts may have stretched over several days or the fighting may
have gone back and forth even over a day's period.

In any event, this particular exercise in information gathering was
quite interesting as I learned many things I had not known previously. It
allowed me to understand the situations that faced our ancestors when they
returned to their shtetls at the end of the War and what followed not long
afterwards when the Germans again invaded Lithuania under different
circumstances.

Recently, I decided to create a military time line for my ancestral shtetl of
Kupiskis regarding what transpired during World War I. Since many of the Jews
were sent to the east during this time period, it was interesting to see what
was happening in their shtetls whilst they were gone. By happenstance, I found
a site one would not ordinarily associate with military information. It
was "Lithuanian Philately" http://lithuanianphilately.com/postal-history which
listed numerous towns and what transpired there during the war. In addition to
the stamp material or other photos shown, the site discusses the creation of the
postal system at that time.

Some of the shtetls discussed on the site are:

Ariogala, Baisogala, Gargzdai, Gruzdziai, Kaltinenai, Kavarija, Kazlu Ruda,
Kelme, Kraziai, Krekenava, Kretinga, Kupiskis, Kybartai, Laizuva, Linkuva, Luse,
Lydavenai, Marijampole, Naumiestis (Sakiai), Naumiestis (Taurage), Nemunelio
(Naujas) Radviliskis, Pagiriai, Pakuonis, Pilviskiai, Raseiniai, Rietavas,
Rokiskis, Sakiai, Seda, Seinai, Skaudvile, Sveksna, Taujenai, Taurage, Utena,
Vainutas, Varniai, Veiveriai, Veliuona, Vieksniai, Vilkaviskis, Vilnius,
Virbalis, Zeimelis.
