A Vilkija Directory

"This "bird’s-eye" view of Vilkija was, for the greater part, researched by Zvi Yeglin of Holon, Israel, and friends in Lithuania. Some additions have been made by the contributions of memory of Zalman Friedman of Milwaukee, and Chaia Bederis, Cleveland.

The editor took the liberty of re-drawing the map for clarity and to add the material following that provided in the original map of Mr. Yeglin.

More "anglicized" spellings have been used, e.g., Bruck for Brook, Wiener for Vinner. Any errors committed above are the responsibility of the editor.

There seems to have been an odd method of numbering houses in Vilkija. The pre-war directory has L. Silkener at #79 Jurborg, a good bit to the west of the High School, yet is remembered as only a few houses east of the school, and just west of Hirsch Wiener at actual #40 Jurborg. This is further complicated when Karabelnik, who lived at #21 Jurborg, is shown between Wiener and #65 Jurborg (Friedland).

Among those unlisted or shown were the families Spunder, Lapinsky. Well it was a long time ago…and congratulations to Zvi Yeglin for a heroic job."
