Joan You have raised an important point because that is how it is perceived
at present. Do you realise the wealth of Latvian Archival information that
we are on the brink of receiving? We will have family lists,cemsus
lists,marriage,birth and death lists and by lists I mean names. We will
have to pay for these Archival lists. The money has to come from
subscriptions to Latvia SIG. It will benefit all of us.
I will double check about the newsgroup but I think that it is open to any
member of jewishgen to subscribe to any SIG newsgroup on Jewishgen that
they would like to. I will get back on this point.

Membership - your response! My interpretation!

Membership gets you a current newsletter. All else is part of the SIG,
Jewishgen site. Is this
what you are saying?

This is a request for all members of the Latvia SIG to pay any membership
dues that are due or outstanding. We need as many paid up members as
possible if we are to be able to purchase the treasured lists of names from
the Archives.
The listing of the holdings will be on line very soon and I will post a
message when it is up.
We hope to have the first set of names at the end of the month and these
will then be put in a searchable database format. There is an immense
amount of data that will be forthcoming but we do need resources.
The newsletter which had been suggested as an online publication will
remain in hard copy for the time being and is a definite advantage of
membership. The next issue should be out in January.
Please recruit any friend or family to our ranks as we need strength of

A number of members have expressed concern at the dearth of messages posted
on this newsgroup. I feel that it is a shame as there is a wealth of
information that we can and should share with one another. Perhaps we
should have a monthly topic about Latvia and our research? Any ideas would
be appreciated.
