I am researching my four grandparental families - Friedman (>from Libau),
Zlotover (Avaslan near Papile), Zimbler (Goldingen) and Tarshish (Zosli).
All four families emigrated >from Courland and Lithuania in the late 1880s
following the May Laws of 1882.
As part of my researches, I have travelled extensively around Courland and
met many members of the local community in Libau.
I am currently setting up a website called www.avaslan.net that tracks my
research and includes a number of photos of the area.
Please do check it out and share with me any information you may have on the
four towns/stehtls. Also if anyone can see any links with any of my four
family trees (also posted on the website) please do contact me.
Best regards to all
