Re: Origin of Latvian Jews #latvia

I have been told that my paternal grandfather's siddur (prayer book) was
"Nusach Spharad" -i.e. - in the Sphardi tradition. Many of my cousins have
quite dark complexions, and could easily pass for Sephardi Jews. Our family
on that side was >from Khozangorodok, a shtetl near Pinsk, though we have no
idea how we landed up there.
