Cemeteries Riga #general

Arlene Beare <arl@...>

The old Jewish cemetery was destroyed and is now a park with a memorial
plaque. There is a large new cemetery and I feel sure that there are lists
of names of the people buried there. How many records predate the second
World War is unclear but I will make enquires and see what I can find out.
There are definitely none in the State Historical Archives.
It is very difficult getting information >from the Synagogue Leaders in
Riga. They seem to guard their records very closely. I have been trying
hard to get records >from them and will most certainly have them in the All
Latvia Database if I succeed.

Berlin's Jewish cemeteries have lists of those interred there. Are there
also lists of those people buried in the Jewish cemeteries of Riga and
Vilna before World War II? If so, how and where can they be researched?
