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, September 2012. Click to enlarge.

Top Inscription: “Å e dus Dieva mierā” (“Sleeping here in God’s peace”)

PÄ“teris Korpis, born March 13, 1863, died April 5, 1909; LÄ«ze Korpe, maiden name Baldone, born September 2, 1861, died May 27, 1911.
