Roots travel advice in Lithuania and Latvia #general


howard wolinsky <wolinsky@...>
 

I am planning a roots trip to Lithuania and Latvia this summer. I expect to hire
Aleks Fegmanis as a guide in Latvia, visiting Dvink and Riga. But I am looking
for some recommendations on guides in Lithuania >from people who have been there
recently. I found postings for about 10 years ago about the guide Regina
Kopilevich. Can anyone on the list have contact information?

I hope to visit Keidan, Kovno, Slobodka and Srednik.I'd be interested in any
travel advice about Latvia and Lithuania as to getting around, such as renting
a car, taking buses and trains, cautions, places to stay. Any help would be
appreciated offline or online, whatever is appropriate.
