Re: Origin of Latvian Jews #latvia

This discussion is interesting.  I have recently identified a very early 19th century ancestor with the surname Dondes.  On the surface and at least to me this suggests Portuguese or Spanish origin.  These ancestors were in Lithuania, probably not in but near Vilnius.  Interestingly, during my research of that name, I found Dondes in 16 and 17th century Scotland.
