Families of Troškūnai (Trashkun)


Troskunai residents who applied for immigration to Palestine (1920–1940)

NOTES:  Not all people who applied for immigration certificates actually went to Palestine. Some people on this list are known to have remained in Trashkun, and some people who went to Palestine do not appear on the list.

Immigration certificates to Palestine were in short supply. Because family members could share a single certificate, people sometimes entered into fictitious marriages—on paper only—to make maximum use of the limited number of certificates.

✓ = succeeded in reaching Palestine before World War II
✕ = did not go to Palestine before World War I
