I checked out this site. Are you aware of good genealogists or sleuths
living in Riga whose services I might use to go through archives? Please
advise. Thanks.

Hi,

I am one of the researchers of Kolonia Lvovo, Kherson, Ukraine. It is
located on Dneiper River between Kakhovka and Kherson. It was established
around 1841 by Jews >from Courland and existed for a 100 years as a Jewish
Shtetl. There is more information at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/lvovo/

We have an 1877 map with about 90 houses. We have recently added
translations at http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/lvovo/map.html which
include about 85 surnames.

Latvian Archives helped trace two families that moved >from Courland to
Lvovo
around 1840. K(O)ENIG(S)FEST family came >from Hasenpoth (now Aizpute) and
ABRAMSON family came >from Bausk. A search of All-Latvia Database produced
a
lot of matches between surnames in Courland and Lvovo.

If you are researching Courland area you should probably check our list of
surnames, as many family moved to Kherson colonies >from Courland. We are
looking for more links between Lvovo and Courland.

Thanks,

Dmitry ABRAMSON
