Latvia SIG #Latvia Re: Zaks Cigarette Factory - Daugavpils/Dvinks #latvia


That would indeed be an extremely valuable resource. I've heard there
is an 1860's era map of Dvinsk in a Museum in Daugavpils. I'm hoping
to see it, and perhaps get a snapshot of it when I'm there in late
June/early July.

I'm pleased to find out that Shosseynaya is 18. Novembra iela. Does
anyone know what Mogilevskaya is now called? Some of my family lived
at the intersection of these two streets at 80, 82, 158/78, 156, in
the house of Pavlov, and also worked in the match factory.

Does anyone know, or know how to find out the exact address on this
long street?

In addition does anyone have either an old street map of Daugavpils
(pre-WW2), or a tabulation of old and new street names? This could
be a
useful resource for others.
