The Latvian Surname Project has been updated!
The total name count is now 800, I added 200 new names including TRÄªSTILTIÅ…Å and PODNIEKS.
Today I am also launching a new project, the Latvian Farm Project. The goal of this project is to match old farm names to their pre-WW2 parishes, as well as begin a study on farm naming practices. Eventually, I hope to tie this in with the Surname Project and the Record Project to create parish profiles and also come up with statistics of how often people may have chosen farm names as surnames. So far farms are listed for the parish of AinaÅ¾i.
Be sure to tune in tomorrow for a very special announcement!
