to get started with your research.

You can read and follow links on the Courland Research Group page
as Jekabpils (previously Jakobstatdt) was in Courland.

You can search the All Latvia Database by filling in the name in
the search box at the bottom of the page and then clicking on the
buttons that come up on the next page if you have any hits.

For example there is a Sara Rivke Schlossberg >from Jekabpils in the
Riga Passport registration database and there are 72 hits in the Riga
Tax administration list etc.

I would imagine that if you request a search >from the Archivists at
the Latvian State Historical Archives and give as many names and dates
as you have that you will get a very positive result. Your family has
lived there a long time and so there should be records.

I am interested in finding information about the SCHLOSSBERG
family >from Jacobpils and Illukste. They lived there during
the entire 19th century up through about 1920.

Thanks Arlene,
Very helpful. Arie Leib Schlossberg, my great grandfather, was a cantor
who gained some international recognition. He attended Anton Rubenstein's
conservatory in Saint Petersburg; sang for the Tsar in Dvinsk, and lived
and toured around the world, Berlin, Paris, England, New York, Chicago and
Seattle (where he died). He brought most of his family to the US on
different trips between 1903 and 1920. I have been trying to piece his
family's life in Latvia together for many years. This looks like a great
opportunity. Thanks again.
