Anne,

For Niara, you might try Lithuania. There are two D-M matches in
ShtetlSeeker, one of which (NAIRIAI) is very close to the Latvia-
Lithuania border.

Is there an online map of Latvia that I can access? I am
looking for the whereabouts of three places. Friederichstad,
Courland, Latvia, Chesnik
(Jesnik) Latvia, and finally a place nobody has ever heard of
called Niara, Latvia. Is there a place called Niara?

Friedrichstadt is now Jaunjelgava and if you go to the Latvia SIG
webpage and look at the map you will see it. Follow the river down
from Riga towards Daugavpils. Naira is the same place and was just
another name for it.

Chesnik is a little more difficult. Perhaps Chesniki in the Ukraine.
72km SE of Lviv.
There is Jesenik in the Czech Republic122km NNE of Brno
Jezena in Belarus not on modern maps. Was in Nowogrodek Province.

Just some thoughts.

Hallo all LatvianSIGers,

Is there an online map of Latvia that I can access? I am looking for the
whereabouts of three places. Friederichstad, Courland, Latvia, Chesnik
(Jesnik) Latvia, and finally a place nobody has ever heard of called Niara,
Latvia. Is there a place called Niara? I am working on a family tree for
a family called COWAN (name change >from SCHNEIDERMAN/SHNEIDERMAN ) and I
believe that there is a researcher with the name HORELICK researching
SHNEIDERMAN >from Chesnik, Latvia. If he is part of this list, please
could he contact me at either the address on this email or angi@icon.co.za
Thank you.
