Roots Travel: June trip to Lithuania, Latvia

Are your family roots in Lithuania and environs? A roots travel trip - sponsored by the non-profit American Fund for Lithuanian-Latvia Jews - is set for June 24-July 4, 2008.

Leaders will be Peggy Mosinger Freedman and Howard Margol, who have previously organized annual trips to Lithuania. Although the June 2007 event had more than 40 participants, this year's group is limited to 25 individuals.

Included are archival visits, synagogues, ghettos, Holocaust sites, meetings with Jewish leaders, sight-seeing, guide/interpreters, and two days to visit participants' ancestral towns or villages.

All meals are included (except for one dinner and two lunches), new and modern hotels, modern bus and more.

Both Freedman and Margol are familiar with the archives and archivists, Lithuania and places of Jewish interest.

If there is any profit from the trip, proceeds will go to supporting the Vilnius Jewish community.
