transplanting lilacs

In my not-so-vast experience, it is hard to kill lilacs. Take the young 
stuff, make sure you have plenty of root hairs, cut back all the growth to a 
few inches, then transplant, same depth you dug them at, water well. Then 
wait. Take more than you think you need, a few chunks might not make it. I 
wouldn't worry too much about the best time to transplant, just make sure 
they get plenty of care at the new site.  Here in the frozen north of 
Minnesota we dig things till about a month before the soil is solid - about 
mid October, to allow some time for the roots to take before the plant goes 
dormant. Best of luck,
