JGS Toronto VIRTUAL SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP (SIG) MEETING
Lithuania-Latvia-Belarus – Thursday 11 February 2021 at 7:30 p.m. EST
Patrick Munits is a first-generation immigrant, born in Riga, Latvia during the Soviet period and for a few decades was the only kid in town with such a name. Patrick researches his Ashkenazi and Latvian ancestors. Much of his family information was lost and obscured during the Holocaust and Stalin’s purges. Over the recent years Patrick was able to uncover many facts previously unknown to his family, all thanks to newly-accessible archives on the Internet. Patrick finds joy whenever he is able to use his native Russian speaking ability together with his professional IT skills to link records from Eastern Europe to immigrant families in North America and elsewhere.
