Unfortunately due to a problem many years ago Aleks is not permitted to do
research in the Archives on behalf of clients. He has a lot of databases
that he has acquired over the years and also accesses the online databases
so he is still able to do good research. He also has databases that he has
acquired >from the Belarus Archives which is an advantage when asking for
information for ancestors >from the Latgale region which was in Vitebsk as
the documents may be in the Minsk Archives and not in Latvia

It is important however that any research information that you receive
that has not come directly >from the Archives with documentation should be
verified with the Archives to be absolutely sure that it is accurate.

Isn't it possible to get Aleks to do the research in the archives? Isn't
that what he is paid to do?
