The purpose of this project is to document the Jewish families living in various towns in the Troki district, Vilnius Province, Lithuania (then Russian Empire) in the 19th century. I was interested in towns that the large Frankel family of Ratnycia / Druskininkai (an agricultural satellite of Merkine) married people from or moved to. See the Geni project on the Frankel family (link to the right). I have photos of Merkine, Žiežmariai, and Druskininkai / Ratnycia from trips in 2012 and 2017.

This is NOT a complete list of the towns in the Troki Gubernia pre- WW I. That can be found on Jewish Gen. I add towns as I identify families.
