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: “Še dus Dieva mierā” (“Sleeping here in God’s peace”)

Pēteris Korpis, born March 13, 1863, died April 5, 1909; Līze Korpe, maiden name Baldone, born September 2, 1861, died May 27, 1911.

Location: Mārtiņi cemetery, Rīga

Words on the tombstone are in old Latvian orthography, my transcription is in modern orthography.
