Five New KehilaLinks

I am pleased to advise that I am now working on five new KehilaLinks.

I compile and manage these Jewish websites as a volunteer for, the world’s largest Jewish genealogical organisation.

JewishGen should be the first stop in the journey of discovery of your family history.

If you have roots in these towns, please contact me at

I hope you are able to share your family’s story and photos of Jewish life in these places.

  1. Hi Eli – My mother’s family came from Taurage (NATHANSON, LIPPMAN) and Ukmerge (KAPLITS, MUSS). My husband and I visited both on the Lithuanian Heritage tour in 2013. Thank you for all your Kehilalinks. I look forward to seeing the Ukmerge one soon. By the way, at least one of my ancestors, Rose KAPLITZ, immigrated to South Africa. I have her manifest but can’t find any other records for her.

    1. Eli – I have tried it. That’s where I found Rose Kaplitz’s manifest. However, I just tried it again and the site has changed. I can’t find a place to search the site by name, and can’t find shipping documents.
