Mr. Zirgulis from the Kedainiai museum answered me very quickly. He has the Yad Vashem list – I think this is his main source of data. He wants to include only the names of people from Keidan and surroundings who were murdered on Aug. 28, 1941 [ those buried in the mass grave]. So he is going through the Yad Vashem Keidan list to get the names.
I don't know whether he is reading the translations of the original POTs, or just going through the list he got from Yad Vashem.
He plans to write first and last names, as written in Lithuanian. In Lithuanian the last names have different suffixes for men, married women, and non-married women. As the original Pages of Testimony are mostly in Hebrew or Yiddish the last names don't have these suffixes. So he cannot always tell by the name the person's gender, and he can't tell if a woman was married.
After he prepares the list, he will send it to me, so I can go over it and correct mistakes. I guess this will demand reading each original POT. I will probably ask for some of you to help me.
I also asked him if he wants us to send him names of people we know were murdered on Aug. 28, as I assume not everybody has filled out ages of Testimony for each known relative. I'll let you all know when he answers that.
That's great! I wanted to do the same.I wonder what the answer will be.
Thanks for the initiative.

I just wrote to mr. Rimantas Zirgulis the director of the Kedainiai museum [thanks to Andy for giving me his e mail address], asking if they are interested in our help in getting Keidan victims' names from the Yad Vashem POT. I'll update you with his reply.
I have an idea, concerning the plan of the Keidan museum and municipality to have a stone plaque with the names of the victims put up in September.
If they have not done it yet, and if is not too late, we could suggest that we go through the on line Yad Vashem pages of Testimony, to look for last names. We could divide the job among several of us, to make it faster.
Andy, could you please find out if the Kedainiai people would be interested in us doing that?
