The speaker for the LitvakSIG luncheon on Tuesday, August 7, will be Russ Maurer. His presentation is titled “Exciting New Records Initiative for LitvakSIG”.
LitvakSIG is embarking on a new records initiative of a scope unprecedented in the 20 year history of the organization. Although work has been quietly underway for some months, this occasion will be the first public announcement of the initiative. The speaker, who is a member of the board and serves LitvakSIG as Coordinator of Records Acquisition and Translation, will share information about the initiative, including the nature of the records, the genealogical information they contain, the region and time period covered, and plans for distribution of the data as the work progresses.
This initiative will be of personal interest to anyone with relatives who lived in—or even just visited—Vilnius in the interwar years.
