Original Documents of the Lithuanian Census & Family Lists: Are They Available Online? #lithuania

Marilyn Robinson

I have the index information for Mendel YUDIN, my paternal gr.gr. grandfather, (b. 1824) from Sharkovshchina, Disna, Vilnius. How do I obtain a copy of the original birth document? The record that I have was from the "Lithuania, LitvakSIG Census & Family Lists from Various Districts, 1795-1900", found on Ancestry. (see attached file)

Thank you,
Marilyn Yudien Robinson

The source of this specific document is LVIA (Lithuanian State Historical Archives) in Vilma (Vilnius).
You may apply to the LVIA requesting for copy of the original document. You should mention the exact source. In your case: LVIA/515/15/878.
They charge for handling and posting.
I succeeded in obtaining such documents concerning my father. 
For more information about their services see:

Hi Marilyn,

The record you want is not online, but the FHL is currently in the process of scanning and posting LVIA/515/15. They have already posted up to file 721 and I know the scanning has progressed well into the 700s. If you can be patient, they will probably reach your record in a matter of months, unless there is an unexpected holdup. Alternatively, you would have to contact the archives and order a copy of the record.

The 1795 revision list as well as later ones prior to 1850 can be found at Familysearch.org. One way of finding
them is to search the catalog for "Vilnius", then look for census records, NOT Jewish records. You'll find the films rather easily from there.
