Latvian archives website changed, links on JewishGen will not work, volunteers needed to assist fixing database #latvia #JewishGenUpdates

The registration page is now

Jewish records are at

None of the links in the "The Jewish Vital Records of Latvia Collection - The Christine Usdin Collection", "Latvia Marriages and Divorces Database", "Latvia Births Database" and "Latvia Death Records" database on JewishGen will work.  (Neither will the links on my website, but I don't think anyone uses it anyway, so I'm not bothering to fix it.)

I am looking for a volunteer to go on the new website and find the new link to replace each link in the database.  I will give you a spreadsheet that has all the records in the database.  You would open it in Excel (or a similar free program), replace the links, and send it to someone at JewishGen for them to upload.
