In search of my roots in Vilnius

Jump to last reply

I will be doing a two week tour of the Baltic States in October and spending a few days in Vilnius, or "Vilna" as my mother always called it. She and her family came to the US in 1919. My mom, who is gone now, was 5 when they came. Her first cousin, who was on the same ship, was 11 and is still alive and well at 104. I plan to talk with her about what she recalls about where they lived, etc. If anyone has any suggestions for me about what not to miss in Vilnius, I would very much appreciate it.
