This is for profiles created as part of the Lithuanian Heritage Project.

To document the emigration experiences of Lithuanians, many historical books have been written. These stories often provide rich details of specific Lithuanian families and record the development and evolution of the communities formed by Lithuanian immigrants in their new lands.

The Lithuanian Emigrant Book Project includes profiles that have been created and/or further developed using information and photographs provided by published books about Lithuanians who have emigrated and stories of their immigration experiences across the globe.

For more information on the project, please contact Ann Marie Yelmokas McDermott or Stephen J Nauyokas.
