Courland SIG #Courland #Latvia Latvian microfilms and records in the LDS FHL #courland #latvia

Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>

While I was browsing through the Jewish Records in the FHL catalogue
on CD-ROM, I found these titles relevant to our SIG. Those of you who
have access to an FHL might want to check them out. Any of you who
both have access and are willing to database the relevant films so
that we could post the database on our website, please contact me so
that we can arrange a work schedule without overlaps. Help us to
help you - Volunteer!!!
