Translated-Transcribed Register Entry Data Tables (REDTs)
for Tverečius RC Parish Ancestor Search


General.  This web page provides links to Tables (on Google Docs) that contain large numbers of birth, marriage and death entries that have been transcribed and translated from the online 1755-1920 Tverečius RC parish registers. 

Background.  For purposes of my own family tree research, I created standard tabular formats for recording the contents of the birth (baptism), marriage and death registers of RC parishes in Lithuania that are archived online at the www.epaveldas.lt website. I refer to these as Register Entry Data Tables (REDTs). These Tables provide translated / transcribed data for the individual entries in the parish registers, and I have tried to follow the practices that are used by Lithuanian genealogists when translating such entries.

In general, I have always tried to include in the tables at least those entries that contain the surnames of my ancestors, but some REDTs go way beyond that basic objective (in a few cases, I have tried to transcribe all entries in the register). Even if the REDTs don't include the surnames for which you may be searching, the REDTs can still be helpful as examples of the entries in the registers.  I have posted the Tables on Google Docs, and have listed below the links to those documents.   


RN Ancestor Surnames. The Register Entry Data Tables contain only a subset of the entries in the Tverečius RCC registers. They typically contain at least those entries that include the surnames of my ancestors. My ancestral surnames within Tverečius RC parish are: Čepulis, Klonis, Kondratavičius, Kudaba, Lukšas, Lukšėnas, Maciukas, Pauliukėnas, Stasiūnas, Telyčėnas, Vitėnas. Additional entries are also included for various reasons.


ABOUT VIEWING THE TABLES ON GOOGLE DOCS

  • clicking on a link below will open that Table in a new window.
  • each Table usually takes time to load (less than 1 or 2 minutes if you have fast download capability). 
  • Google Docs provides the capability to change the magnification for online viewing.
  • Google Docs provides the capability to print the document.
  • Google Docs provides the capability to copy the document to your own computer [but be aware that these Tables are all work-in-progress and are updated from time to time].


 
ENDNOTES TO TABLES
Many of the endnotes to the Register Entry Data Tables tend to be the same, so they are listed in a generic document instead of being included in each separate Table.
