Tombstone Tuesday – Ernests Eglītis, 1881-1940

    Have you taken a picture of every grave in Meža kapi? Is there a search facility to filter through them? I am looking for any others with the same name.

  2. Antra:

    No, not nearly close to all of them! Maybe sometime in the future, but if you’re looking for the location of a specific grave, you can contact the cemetery administration and they might be able to give you that information, assuming you have precise information about the person (date of death, etc.).
