New format of Surname Saturday here on Discovering Latvian Roots – if you want surname meanings, go check out the Facebook and Twitter pages, here on the blog it will be a summary of what’s new on the Latvian Surname Project, as funded by my supporters on Patreon!
New this week!
Parishes added – Ciecere, Karva, Lazdona, Zira
Names added – Aveniņš, Barons, Blūmentāls, Bunga, Ēvelītis, Gaigalītis, Mengelsons, Straujupe, Viesis, Virsnieks
… and over 50 other names have been updated to reflect their presence in more parishes!
The Surname Project currently includes 1347 surnames from 486 parishes, towns and cities. Many parishes only have a few names listed so far, but I’m working every day to add more for each parish!
