The Siauliai District Research Group (SUG) has been acquiring, translatingtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
and distributing records >from this area since 1998. Currently we have
50,648 records on the All Lithuania Database. 4,848 additional records have
been distributed to contributors and will not appear on the ALD until late
in 2008, and more are awaiting translation. These lists are revision lists,
tax and voter lists, resident lists, etc. There are no vital records (BDM)
before 1922 available at any of the Lithuanian archives for any of the towns
in the District. They were destroyed in WWII. There may be some vital
records available after 1922 but we have not made any effort to get them.
You would do better to write directly to the archives for those records
concerning your family.
