Unfortunately many of the civil registration records for this area no longer exist. However, some of the records are stored in the Lithuanian State Historical Archives.

If during your research, you are looking for civil registration records and you have data from another source, you can send an e-mail in English to the archives, asking if that record may be available.

Here is the link to their main page in English. http://www.archyvai.lt/en/archives/historicalarchives.html
The e-mail address is listed on this page. They will also reply in English.

Sometimes you may find a reference to a civil registration record in another source such as the church records. If you include that number in the request to the archives, it may help facilitate their search.


P.S. Since we don't have a definitive listing of all the civil registration records available in the Lithuanian State Historical Archives, it would help us greatly if you shared any information, in the archive reply, about the records that are available. Contact us
