Welcome to LitvakSIG

You arrived at this page via link from MyHeritage. Welcome! We are happy to see you.

What can you do here? This is the public side of our website. From here you can search for your ancestor’s record in the All-Lithuania Database (select from the green menu bar at the top of the screen). Depending on the kind of record it is, you may discover other family members whose records are associated with your ancestor’s record.

If the record that brought you here came from the Vilnius household registers, you can visit the VHR project home page for further information.

More generally, we invite you to explore our public website and discover resources such as our interactive shtetl map, the descriptions of our district and gubernia research groups and our special projects, and information about the various archives in Lithuania. There is even a web form where you can offer to volunteer with us (we are an entirely volunteer organization). The search bar to the right offers full-text search of our web pages.

If you already happen to be a donor to one of our research groups, you can access the password-protected part of our website by logging in on our login page or by using the login link on our home page (click the home icon at the top left). This is where you can find our data in the form of spreadsheets, which offer the possibility of some research strategies not easily accomplished through the All-Lithuania database.

If you have questions, email either Russ Maurer, Records Acquisition & Translation Coordinator, or Barry Halpern, webmaster.
