In this series, I am providing pictures of tombstones from Latvian cemeteries, all with death dates prior to 1945. I do not have any further information on the people mentioned.

Photo taken by me, April 2012. Click to enlarge.

Top Inscription: “Eduards Dambis Ģimenes Kapi” (“Family Grave of Eduards Dambis”)

Names: Jānis Adolps, born April 27, 1908, died April 24, 1910; Marta Leontina, born July 27, 1909, died October 28, 1910.

Bottom Inscription: “Nāc piekusušais ceļinieks, še atpūsties varēsi, šeit mieru panāksi” (Come weary traveller, here you can rest, here you will find peace”)

Location: Meža kapi cemetery, Rīga

I would guess that the Eduards Dambis mentioned in the heading of the gravestone is probably the father (or maybe grandfather) of these children.
