Rokiškis Region. Our initial activities were undertaken in the Rokiškis region of Lithuania. From 1842 until the First World War, the area was in the Czarist Empire, specifically, in the “Novo-Aleksandrovsk” (today, Zarasai) uyezd (district) of the Kovna Gubernya (province). Today, the region includes Rokiškis (Rakisik), Kamajai (Kamai), Obeliai (Abel), Pandėlys (Ponedel), and Panemunėlis. Links are presented here to materials that may be of interest to anyone who has an interest in learning more about the region.
