The program starts at 1.30pm at Temple Emanuel, 385 Ward Street, Newton.
Berton will describe what records exist in Lithuania for genealogical research, what they look like and how researchers can access them.
She will explain LitvakSIG and provide a tour of its new website.
"LitvakSIG is the primary internet resource for Lithuanian-Jewish research, whose mission is to preserve Litvak heritage by discovering, collecting, documenting, and disseminating information about the once vibrant Jewish community of Lithuania before its destruction in the Holocaust. Besides Independent Lithuania (1919-1940), the geographic coverage is the larger Lithuania from the Russian Empire Period (1795-1919, including a number of shtetls now in Belarus and Poland."
