According to Hana Shaf-Brener, Shloime Mer and his wife Ita-Tsira had a son, Yakov, and a daughter, Rivka. Yakov was married to Basya (nee Tsimbler), and the couple had four children: a daughter, Eta, and three children born the same year – triplets? – Teya, Leiba, and Leib. Rivka was married (her husband’s name is unclear) with four children.

Another Mer family lived in Shkud: Nisim, his wife Krayna (nee Chayf), and their daughter Yehudit. Their relationship to Shloime Mer and his family is unclear.

Jewish Gen’s All Lithuanian Revision List Database 3 indicates that the Mer family lived in Shkud since at least 1816. The Lithuanian Tax and Voters List database includes some information on Shloime Mer: his father was Lozer, he had a brother named Ber, and in 1904 he was a poor glazier with six family members. The Lithuanian Deaths database indicates that Eta Tsire Mer (nee Yankelovich) died in 1929, age 68. The Yizkor Book Necrology database lists only Yakov Mer.

As of October 2013, Yad Vashem provides no information of the Mer family/ies of Shkud.
