Was Riga in the Pale of Settlement 1874? #latvia #lithuania

Can anyone tell me if Riga was in the Pale of Settlement in the 1870's? My Kagan family moved from Zhager (now Lithuania) to Riga, and I'm just wondering if this was difficult to do at that time.
Thanks in advance.

DO YOU HAVE ANY CONNECTION  BY ANY CHANCE TO  FANNY KAGAN FROM RIGA WITH THE DETAILS IN THE ATTACHED FILE?

Only Latgale (the eastern region of Latvia), which was part of Vitebsk hibernia, was part of the Pale. Riga was in the historical region known as Vidzeme.

Uh, that would be Vitebsk gubernia - typo or autocorrect.  Sorry about that!
