With almost 2.5 million Lithuanian Jewish record translations — mainly censuses and vital records — LitvakSIG’s (Special Interest Group) publicly searchable “All Lithuania Database” provides the primary foundation for Litvak genealogical research. There are also additional sources online for researching your Litvak roots. In her talk “Researching Your Roots with LitvakSIG,” Judy Baston will offer a comprehensive overview of the LitvakSIG database and website, as well as other important sources. The presentation will detail the best ways to use Litvak databases and websites to achieve optimum results and to enhance your knowledge of your Litvak family information. It will also include tips for determining what records are available, for understanding search results, and for accessing information in search results. The presentation will also cover LitvakSIG and its “All Lithuania Database,” as well as other resources from JewishGen, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, YIVO and other sources.
