The Jewish Latvia database has Riga marriages 1854-1921. I checked the
name Nathanson but did not find Lili and Samuel. I checked the name
Nathanson but you may wish to do some further searches such as fuzzy etc.
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/jgdetail_2.php

There are also Nathanson's >from all over Latvia in the new Marriage
database see below.

I also did not explore all the other hits that the name occurs in so I
suggest you do it.

I have a listing of Jewish Business' in my Guide to Jewish Genealogy in
Latvia and Estonia. I had a look and there is a Nathanson and Bernheim
-Fancy and Fashion goods Trade. Nathanson Jankel Mowscha and Sarah
Gr.Sunderstrasse as you said.

If you want to request a search >from the Latvian Historical Archive then
write to irina.veinberga@...
No proof is required just give details of the names and dates of the
persons and any other family members for whom you know names. There is a
long waiting list.

Some information for the Discussion Group.
We have just added a new Marriage database and when you access the
information on the Database you will get valuable information on how to
access the Raduraksti Records
https://www.jewishgen.org/new/latvia-vital-records/
The Archives holds Vital Records (Birth ,Marriage and Death)up to 1914.

Subject: [latvia] Post-1909 marriage records

My father's parents were Samuel Mozeson, >from Warsaw, and Lili Nathanson,
from Riga. I assume that they were married in Riga since, traditionally,
the wedding takes place where the bride lives. My father was born in
Warsaw in April of 1913, so I assume his parents got married some time
between 1909 and 1912. I understand that access to post-1909 marriage
records is difficult - assuming that such records have survived. So, how
do I go about applying to see if a post-1909 Mozeson-Nathanson Riga
marriage record exists? What proof is required of me?

Also, would there have been a marriage announcement in the Riga papers
of that time? Lilli Nathanson's father was Max [Jankel Mowsha] Nathanson,
a merchant of the First Guild in the pre-WW1 Pale of Settlement. He may
have lived at #8 Greshnaya iela at the time of his daughter's marriage.
He was co-owner of the Nathanson & Bernheim Department Store at
Sunderstrasse/Grecinieku 8, and possibly had other stores at Karlines
17-15 and Brivibas 93-29. If there was a marriage announcement in a Riga
newspaper some time between 1909 and 1912, how would I go about finding it?

Thank you for any assistance,
