Latvia SIG #Latvia Finding Zara - something to inspire those looking for family #latvia
My journey of discovery should inspire those of you seeking family
A door that had been closed for over 35 years, has reopened through
good detective work mixed with luck and the help of some professionals
as well as fellow cyber travellers.
Once I received a registered letter >from the archives in Riga, I knew
that things would develop quickly.
In the end, it took less than one hour after posting messages on
Jewishgen.org and Facebook.com to find Alon Gold on Geni.com and his
"baba Sofa", Zara Smushkovich, my long lost first cousin!
Two people who I did not know, Elena Shapiro Wayne and Gert Rogers,
reached out and provided the vital links.
A rip roaring success story, if ever there was one!
There is so much history still to share. We are so looking forward to it.
