South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica Lithuanian Vital Records Indexing Project Update - Vilna Vital Records Challenge Grant #southafrica

Joel Ratner

I am pleased to announce the funds necessary to take full advantage of the
$1000 challenge grant by the Baron family have been received. These
contributions, along with the matching funds, will allow approximately two
years worth of Vilna city records to be translated. There are 80 years worth
of records in total for Vilna, so we are off to a good start.
The ability to complete all remaining records will require similar
contributions on the part of others. If anyone else wishes to make a similar
challenge grant, please contact me at Joelrat1@... .
