The Keidan e-mail list

This is an invitation to anyone with roots or interest in Keidan and its history as a Jewish community. Join us on an electronic-mail list, to share information and discuss Keidan, its past and present and the region that surrounds it in Lithuania. The list provides a channel for Keidaner descendents and others to network, learn from each other and deepen our understanding of our common roots.

If you're unfamiliar with e-mail lists, this is how it works: Once you subscribe -- a process that takes about 2 minutes and costs nothing -- you will automatically receive any email posted by other members of the list, and all other subscribers will automatically receive your messages sent there as well. You can unsubscribe at any time.

There are no regular meetings, no dues and no obligations besides civility and good will. Our members reside all over the world. We share genealogical information, stories, history and any other information about Keidan that comes our way. Everyone is invited to contribute in whatever way they can, and to use the list to pursue any relevant subject of interest. The content and direction of the discussion is entirely up to the subscribers.

To join, just fill in your email address in the box below:
