Courland SIG #Courland #Latvia New Genealogy ebook on JGSGB site #courland #latvia

Arlene Beare

I have updated my Guide to Jewish genealogy in Latvia and Estonia and it is
now in ebook format. I must stress that this will be of use to researchers
not only >from Latvia and Estonia but elsewhere in Eastern Europe. There is
a brief chapter on Sources in the UK and with one click you can go to the
National Archives. I have a brief Introduction to Genetic Genealogy and one
on Social Media with links to sites with a more detailed explanation. This
is the first ebook published by JGSGB (Jewish Genealogical Society Great
Britain) who will benefit >from the sales. There are a few copies in print
format but we wanted it to be mainly published as an ebook. The second
edition of my Book was in 2006 and many telephone numbers and addresses of
Archives have changed as well as Internet sites and email addresses which
means that the second edition is now out of date. These have all been
updated. There is information on Passports both Internal and External. The
book contains the excellent chapter written by Nick Evans on Emigration
detailing how our Ancestors got to other Countries >from Latvia always
remembering that many Lithuanians may also have sailed >from Libau now


The book is listed under featured publications and you can buy it for £5.
You will receive am email giving you a username and password to access the
site in the future and another email with download details. The book is in
pdf format and easily navigable.
