Linda,
I don't see a subscribe link for Little Lithuania either. John Peters is a significant contributor there; perhaps he knows more. From the main Forum 54 page, you can sign up for a login and password, but I think that might be to start your own group? Or not! It just isn't clear.

Linda,
I'm really glad that your letter writing campaign to Lithuania is beginning to yield responses!

The messages were:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LithuanianGenealogy/message/48993
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LithuanianGenealogy/message/48994

The names were similar, and the possible areas the same, so it struck me.

That's me! By the way, that other guy was searching Jegelevicius, not Jurgelevicius...but they are pretty close, and the Zarasai region has both names.

Linda,
Are you in the LIthGen group on yahoo? I was going thru old emails in my box and I found a discussion on the same family you're researching.

Linda,
For letters to Lithuania, I kind of use this template:
Date 2009

Name (I copy and paste from the internet phone book so all the symbols are included)
Street Address (again, copied from the phone book)
LIETUVOS RESPUBLIKA

Dear Name,

I am sorry I cannot write this letter in the Lithuanian language. I hope that you can understand English, or that you know someone who can translate. I found your name on the internet telephone directory.

My name is XXXXX and I am trying to find the family of my great-grandmother (or whatever relation) in Lithuania. Her name was XXXXXXXX. She was born XDateX in XXXX Village, XXXX Area, Lithuania. S/he came to the USA/UK in XDateX, and his/her last village before coming here was XXXXXX Village, XXXXX Area, Lithuania. When s/he came to America/UK, s/he lived in XXXXXXX. S/he married XXXXXXX in XDateX.

S/he had brothers and sisters named XXXXXX who also came to AmericaUK. His/her parents were XXXXXXX and XXXXXXX.

Do you know about your family history? Do you know if this is your family?

Thank you very much. I hope to hear your reply soon.

Sincerely,



Name

Address: XXXXXXX

Email: XXXXXXX
