estates near Grobin in Kurland #latvia

koshka <koshkacats@...>


I just received wonderful information >from the Latvian Archives.
They said my Great-Grandfather, David GREENSPON, lived near Grobin
(which is in Kurland) for more than 20 years. He first lived in
the inn-house Staben of the Bukamens estate and then moved to
estate Mezheneken.

Does anyone have any information or clues about these estates?

It also says he lived in the "Oberbartau volost of the Grobin
district" in one place and "near Grobin" in another.

Was Grobin both a town and a district?

Is Oberbartau another term for Libau?

Thank you very much for any help and suggestions. I'm going to
Latvia in the Spring and trying to get as much information as

Best Regards,
