Dear All:

Thanks for your responses. I am still slightly confused. I mean Latvia
was occupied so of course I believe if you are born in an occupied
country you would get that citizenship but once the country reverted
then you would no longer be a citizen of that country and become a
citizen of the country of birth. >from what I know, my family, although
Jewish, have lived in Latvia hundreds of years. My grandfather never
became a US citizen so before he died in 1978 would he have had a
Russian Passport or Latvian? To find his birth certificate am I looking
in the wrong place with the Latvian archives or should I be checking
under Russian Archives?

Thanks again.
