Summary
The history of the Baltic States is the story of unceasing struggles to dominate Baltic ports and outlets. There was never a time that Moscovy, or Russia as she was later known, did not fight for dominance over the warm water ports on the Baltic Sea. At different times, different areas of the Baltic States were in the hands of the Germans, the Swedes, the Danes, Poland-Lithuania, various princes and mardukes, and Moscovy-Russia. Present-day Latvia was never a homogeneous land. It is comprised principally of three different areas, each one with a dissimilar history and made up from different population sources. One needs to understand the background of each area where one's ancestors settled, in order to determine the likely place to look for earlier generations. I would like to take these three areas: Lifland or Livonia, Latgale, and Courland and briefly discuss their histories with relation to the lives and treatment of the Jews in each. The discussion should enable you to make progress in your next step in searching for the ancestors whose tracks have disappeared, whether it is in Russia, Belarus, the Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Prussia, Germany or elsewhere. And the contrary would also be true. If you have lost track of ancestors in any of these areas, you might consider looking for them in the various provinces of Latvia. This talk should point you in the right direction!
