IGRA 2021 Webinar Series - From Liepaja to Latgale – Latvian Jewish Research
Marion Werle is our lecturer. In recent years, the number of resources available to the Jewish researcher with Latvian roots has increased exponentially. This talk will introduce the core sources to further your Latvian research. The presentation coves vital records (birth, marriage and death), censuses, revision lists and house lists, internal passports, the Latvia Research Division databases on JewishGen, newspaper articles, and Holocaust resources, including the Latvia Names Project. Recent filming in the Latvian State Historical Archives by FamilySearch has added to the availability of documents and created a wealth of information in unindexed documents. This presentation will also be of interest to researchers with family from Lithuania, as there were close ties between the two areas, with many families having families that extend into both countries.
