Okmiany, Latvia/ HAIT-KLEIN Family #general


In the Jewish Gen All-Latvian database, I came across a Mowscha HAIT-KLEIN(or
HAET-KLEIN), 63 or 64 years old in 1900, living in Riga and >from Okmiany,
Schaulen, Kovno. Does anyone know the current name of Okmiany? Does anyone know
anything about a HAIT-KLEIN or HAET-KLEIN family >from Okmiany, Riga or
thereabouts? I believe my wife's great great father Nathan KLEIN (who was
probably born in the 1830s)may be related to this family, perhaps Mowsha's
brother. Family lore says that the name was HEICKLEIN, which seems close to
