New Lithuanian records online

Recently added to JewishGen's Lithuanian records are 1,200 from Birzai, 1,000 from Linkuva, and 1,100 from Panevezys.

Additionally, LitvakSIG District Research Groups coordinator Olga Zabludoff recently announced an agreement between Litvak SIG and the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP) in Jerusalem.

The arrangement permits LitvakSIG to acquire copies of the CAHJP's
Lithuanian-Jewish holdings, to translate the records and to post the data in
the All-Lithuania Database (ALD) on JewishGen.

An Israeli researcher-translator has surveyed the extensive CAHJP records for appropriate material for various databases, including court files; letters, 1918-1921, written by Dubnow, Bialik and other Jewish literary figures; and a historical document collection. The lists cover 1816-1903.
