Interested in researching your Lithuanian ancestors in the Old Country but not sure where to start? In this syllabus, Genealogist of the Newbury Street Press, James Heffernan, details the types of records that can be found in Lithuanian archives, how to access them, and tips for deciphering the languages (Lithuanian, Russian, Polish) that you are likely to encounter. It also includes information for finding a researcher based in Lithuania to access record sets that have not yet been digitized.
This syllabus is intended to accompany our online lecture Lithuanian Research: Back to the Old Country (archived recording as of 1/12/24: https://americanancestors.org/video-library). It includes a reference for all resources mentioned in the session, plus links to many others.
