Re: Documents from the Lithuanian Embassy in Riga (Latvia) #lithuania #latvia #records

After 20 years of searching for my great grandfather’s family when I learned that their
last residence in 1888 was Vilna before emigrating, I had not found anything for them in the ALD databases on Jewishgen.  Lo and behold just a few months ago someone suggested a different spelling of the name
And now I have found not only his siblings, but his father’s siblings in three towns in Lithuania.

Genealogy is a combination of luck and grey
matter, so be creative in the spelling and phonetics of the names you are researching.

Coulb be that you have done me a favor!
 My grandfather who migrated to Leeds UK  was thought to have been born in Riga.
But his father..married twice originated from Kovna,Lithuania.
I never found any listings anywhere for him or his wives (not for want to searching on every possible search engine)
So... I shall enquire about those archives.
Best wishes,
