According to Hana Shaf-Brener, Alter Shefts lived in Shkud.
Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Tax and Voters Lists database has only one entry for the Skuodas Shefts family: in 1904, Chaim Iosel Shevts, son of Movsha, is listed as a poor shoemaker with six family members; perhaps Chaim was Alter’s father or grandfather?
A search of “Alter Shefts” (without the place name) on Jewish Gen reveals an Alter Shevc, born 26 Nissan 1886 to Icyk and Golda Rivka in Panevezys (Lithuania Births database). Perhaps this Alter later moved to Skuodas?
As of November 2013, Yad Vashem contains no information about the Shefts family of Shkud.
