Rabbi Yakov Rabinovich of Dvinsk #latvia #rabbinic

I am trying to find out some biographical details of Rabbi Yakov Rabinovich
of Dvinsk, who married my great grandparents, Sora Basha Goltz and Abe
Zalman (Solomon) Abrahamovich on February 22nd, 1889, (corresponding to the
Hebrew date of 3 Adar 5649).
I wonder if anyone has any information about this rabbi or where I might
find information on him please?

In the official 1901 Death Registers for Dvinsk (Daugavpils), Latvia as well Marriage Registers for 1886 as well as other years, Rabbi Yakov Rabinovich signed off on these. This probably means he was the State Rabbi for Dvinsk or government-paid rabbi. If I find any further information on him, will post.
