Guidelines for Commenting

1. Please do not post the same item on multiple posts. You only need to post once for it to be seen.

2. Please include a working email address - if your comment is related to your own personal family history, rather than Latvian genealogy in a more general sense, I prefer to respond by email to maintain your privacy. By leaving a comment with your email address, you consent to receiving an email reply to your query to that email address.

3. I don't sell email addresses or send anything to them besides responses to your comments. I am the only person who has access to them.

Revision List Indexes

So the new project that I’ve been working on – revision list indexes!

Now, these indexes are simple – family name and number, and the farm names and numbers they appear in on the specified estate. More information is on the Revision Lists page.

The revision lists I’ve indexed aren’t available online yet, but they might be soon. For now, you’ll need to consult the records onsite at the Latvian State Historical Archives. I’ve provided the fond/abstract/item information you will need, as well as the microform call number.

Today I’ve added the list for the Dikļi estate. Let me know if you’re related to family 56 – Graumann. They’re my ancestors too!

How many indexes there will be in all, I can’t say. Depends on how much free time I have while I’m at the archives this week – this is my last week. When I get home next week, I’ll start into posts about the whirlwind of the past month and all of the different kinds of records I’ve been working with. I’ll be making these posts in amongst moving – I’m moving four days after I get home!
