Resources

One of LitvakSIG’s main missions is to provide research resources for people interested in Litvak research. In this section of our website, we have compiled a list of resources that document the history and context of Jews living in Lithuania, the rich cultural Litvak heritage, the lives and experiences of Lithuanian Jews, and the efforts of multiple generations to salvage the memory of our heritage.

The resources are organized into the following sections:

  • LitvakSIG News
    This official Blog of LitvakSIG brings you current news, developments, and highlights of new content on this website.
  • LitvakSIG Online Journal
    An online journal of original articles on topics of interest to researchers of Litvak genealogy.
  • Image Library
    A collection of images of people and places of interest to researchers of Litvak genealogy.
  • Maps
    A selection of maps spanning the timeframe Jews lived in Lithuania from their arrival circa 1600 through Lithuania’s independence in 1991.
