Note: In the copy of the directory I have, the house numbers between
121 and 145 have been cut off. Therefore, it is possible the number-name

combinations are off by 1or 2 in this section. Also, where there is
a question mark after the name, either the original author had a question

mark there or the end of the name was cut off in a photocopy. Also,
thanks to Art Poskanzer for the
scanned images.[Michael Tobin]

"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."
