Latvia SIG #Latvia Surnames in 1903 Business Ads in Mitau (Jelgava), Latvia Guidebook #latvia


Lois Rosen
 

Dear All,
While at the IAGJS Conference in SLC I stumbled upon an old (1903)
guidebook to Jelgava, Latvia in the stacks at the Family History
Library. The book has one page on the synagogue among its many pages
of churches and castles, but the back of the book is full of business
ads >from both Riga and Mitau (Jelgava), Latvia. I did not try to
discern which businesses were Jewish owned/run for fear of leaving
one out, so decided to copy them all. The ads are beautiful, and
include those for jewelers, brewers, shoe stores, musical
instruments, book stores, pharmaceuticals, confectioners and a
translator, to name a few. I will list the surnames I've extracted
from the ads, and if one is of interest to you, please contact me
privately and I will e-mail the ad to you.
