Re: Technical problem with Latvia database #latvia
The Latvian State Historical Archives, which runs the Raduraksti site, has changed it and none of the links that were indexed will work.
The website to look at the books of records has been changed to https://raduraksti.arhivi.lv/
Registration page is now https://raduraksti.arhivi.lv/signup
Jewish records are at https://raduraksti.arhivi.lv/collections/1:4:13:2022
In theory, you should be able to navigate from there to the book you want.
If that doesn't work, there is a way to bypass the website's interface and go directly to a JPG of the page of records you want. Anyone who needs to do this, send me your e-mail address so I can send you instructions for how to find the link for the page you want in a private message. (I'm not posting it here because there's a question of whether accessing the JPG directly without going through the registration process is close enough to hacking that the instructions are not allowed to be posted on the discussion group.)
Rather than fixing the links to Raduraksti, the Latvia SIG's plan is to replace them with links to see the same records on familysearch.org; if you wish to participate in this project, please e-mail Paul Cheifitz <paulcheifitz@...> and Marion Werle <canadagenes@...> and copy Avraham Groll <agroll@...>.
