SURNAMES EXTRACTED FROM THE
BIRTH RECORDS FOR JONAVA
1851 THRU 1888

The Jonava Research Group has hired a researcher to translate the vital records in the Lithuanian State Historical Archives in Vilnius. The Archives holds birth, marriage, divorce, and death records for Jonava from 1851 until 1915 when the Jews were required to leave Jonava because of World War I. Although the Church of the Latter Day Saints is microfilming these records, they are difficult to work with because they are in 18th Century Cyrillic script and Yiddish. If you would like to participate in this project, please contact Peggy Mosinger Freedman.

To date, over 3,500 birth records have been translated. Many include mother's maiden name and town of registration. An alphabetical list of the surnames in the translated records follows.
