Re: Kandava, Kurland, Latvia #latvia


If you search the listserv there have been some past discussions of Kandava with little bits of information here and there. This is the reply I got from the Latvian Archives when I inquired five or six years ago. So it might be possible to hire someone on the ground to do further research for you.

"Unfortunately vital records of the Jewish community in Kandava (Candau) have not survived at all.

But research about Jewish family from Kandava is possible because we have other documents.
