Our group's data is available in Excel format. The spreadsheet allows the researcher to carry out various data sorts which are a useful tool in identifying family members. Our group data is not made publicly available in the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database (ALD) for at least 18 months after translation.
Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union , an immense and previously inaccessible body of Jewish genealogical records from the 19th and early 20th centuries has become available. LitvakSIG, a non profit 501c 3 corporation, has spent a number of years establishing working relationships with the people who operate the Lithuanian archives. Through the efforts of its’ dedicated volunteer staff, LitvakSIG with the cooperation of the Lithuanian Archives, has compiled an extensive catalogue of the archive’s holdings.
The Panevezys Research Group began in May 1997. It is a cooperative effort to obtain Jewish records from the district of Panevezys which is in north central Lithuania. In the years of its’ existence, this group has acquired translations of over 60,000 records but there is still a great deal more to be done. All this data can be found on the data page of this site.
