- I suggest you contact Sam Aaron, the coordinator of the Raseiniai
District Research Group. His ancestral town is Kvedarna, which is in
the Raseiniai district. Sam is quite a scholar and may well know the
answer to your question.
Kvedarna came up a few weeks ago on this discussion list when a
researcher was looking for his ancestors who he thought had lived in
Keidan. It turned out they had lived in Kvedarna which is called
Kveidan / Khveidan in Yiddish.
I shall send you Sam's email address privately.
