Does anyone know the history of Jewish immigration >from Lithuania to
Latvia in the 19th Century or earlier...assuming there was such a
thing.

Thanks!

My mother's family also has a Latvian/Lithuanian link, and also a line >from
Belarus (Drissa): the Lithuanian family is the NOTES/NOTIS family, based in
Kovno; the Latvian family is MALTINSKY, based in Dvinsk and also in Rezhitsa;
the Drissa family is MOSTOW/MOSTOFF. In Rezhitsa, by 1897, there is at least
one Notis/Maltinsky marriage. The relationship continued in NY, with at least
two Notis/Maltinsky marriages. There was at least one Mostow/Maltinsky marriage
by the time the couple came to Queens in 1900.

Drissa and Dvinsk or Rezhitsa are relatively close together, but Kovno is a
substantial jump >from the Latvian towns. Morris Maltinsky's father was a
"small trader", or a merchant, as I recall. Not at all sure what the Notis
family did, but if it had to do with trade, it wouldn't have been impossible
to have become friendly in business. In the case of the intermarriage in
Rezhitsa, incidentally, it was the bride, Elka (?) Notis, who traveled to
Rezhitsa to marry Reuben Maltinsky.
