How do I access the actual image at the Lithuanian historical archive #lithuania

Hi all,
I am looking for a way to be able to access the actual photo at the LVIA. Do the other numbers mean something?
Any help would be fully appreciated.

Hi.  You may be able to get a copy of the record from a volunteer at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City.  The seven digit number in the far right hand box indicates it has been filmed, and provides the film number.  If it was underlined, you would be able to click on the number and access the roll of film.  There is no line (no link), so you need to request it.  If you were able to look at the film yourself, the 6 would indicate that it is the 6th item that was photographed on the roll, an item being a set of multiple records.  1848 is the year of the record.  It is record # 48 for that year, which will help you find the item on the page when you receive it.  I took a JewishGen class from Nancy Holden, who thinks that records cost $5 each.

I don't know if you can access the Lithuanian archive records directly, but I do know the Lithuanian Archives also has researchers, as a cousin of my husband's worked with one prior to a research visit to Lithuania. I don't know what the breakdown numbers mean for the Lithuanian archive.  Presumably, it explains where the record is stored in the library.

Hope you are able to get it!

Hi Elani.  I wrote to the Archive in search of records, I had no numbers or anything.  First, they wrote back saying they were going to look.  Eventually, they told me to make a transfer to their account in Lithuania... it must have been something like 35 USD at the time, and eventually, I got by actual mail about 15 pages of documents. The process was slow, and it must have taken a couple of months maybe... but I did get what I was searching for.

Elani,

At this time the LVIA Lithuanian State Historical Archives does not have any images available online.

Should you decide you want to order a copy of the record the process to follow is:
1) send an email in English to istorijos.archyvas@...
2) with all of the information as listed in your photocopied record; emphasis the address LVIA/1236/3/827 because that is the exact place in the archive where the physical record is stored
3) the archive will reply explaining how much money you need to forward
4) once you have sent the money required, the archive then sends you the record.

Go to the  https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog
Enter the name of the town you are interested in i.e. Szaki
and press enter.  The next page will take you to the existing records which have been filmed.  
You will find the film you are looking for is available and by going to section 6 on the film and looking for the Akt number, you will be able to download the relevant item.

The Vilnius State Historical Archives participated in the Archives Portal Europe project.  I thought that they had put some documents online, but when I checked before responding, I only found catalogue information, I could not find digitized documents. Carol Hoffman's information is more current than my information.

The Archives Portal Europe project is vast, and requires working in a variety of languages.  If someone else finds
links to actual documents, I hope that they will share the information.  I found a catalog listing for one interesting file, but I do not know if LitvakSIG has already indexed it.
The file is Vilniaus rabinų mokykla (Виленское раввинское училище) (Villnius School of Rabbis).

The link to the Archives Portal Europe listing for the Lithuanian State Historical Archives is:
