Lithuanians have been immigrating to America since as early as the 17th century. Yet, rapidly changing boundaries, unfamiliar languages, and late civil registration are just some of the challenges faced by family historians trying to trace their Lithuanian roots. In this online lecture and syllabus, Genealogist James Heffernan provides you with a better understanding of the waves of immigration to the United States, what types of records exist, and how to get started in Lithuanian family history research.
This syllabus is intended to accompany our online lecture Getting Started in Lithuanian Family History Research (archived recording as of 5/25/23: https://americanancestors.org/video-library). It includes a reference for all resources mentioned in the session, plus links to many others.
