understand your statement Russel that you have drawn a blank in your
Latvia search and that no records exist for 1879. There is a large
Dvinsk Database in the Jewishgen Latvia Database. If you are a
Contributor to Jewishgen you can do an Advanced search which brings
up 7 Bernsteins with their age in1882.
There were also many Bernsteins in Bauska and other places. The
Courland Enlistment Registers for 1845-1874 have 91 names. You must
widen your search and not restrict yourself to Dvinsk.
As this is the case if you requested a search >from the Archivists at
the Latvian State Historical Archives I am sure they would be able to
find data on your family.
I suggest that you write to them at irinwein@... and give as
much detail on your family names and dates as possible.
