M is for Manorial Estate

Many civil parishes bear the names of what used to be the main manorial estate in the area. Some of these names later changed to become more Latvian in 1920, 1925 and 1939, so if you can’t find any information on a certain parish prior to that time period, check to see if it is one that had a name change. Some examples: Briņķi became Nīkrāce in 1920, while Nurmuiža became Lauciene in 1939.

Do you need help identifying what estate your ancestors were from? Or which modern-day parish it is found in? Let me know, I can help!
