Courland municipal/administative capital ? #lithuania

Ben Forman <ben.forman@...>

Thanks for all your help tracing down the 1908 book about Courland
Rabbonim, the email journey has taken me >from here in Manchester to
Israel, Stanford and amazingly, finaly to just across the Pennines in

So now I have a copy of this very fragile book, more like a notebook
really, published 100 years ago, and possibly containing a reference to
an ancestor of mine who was head of the Courland Beth Din in the 1800s
(Rabbi Eli Shlomo Shivka Chaim BENSON/BENZION or simlar)

There are three index/contents page which I am hoping to get translated,
but in advance of that I am wondering if anyone has any idea which town
or city the Courland Beth Din would have ben situated in the mid 1800s.

Many thanks as always
