Research database and resources to connect Jews with their Latvian family history and connect Latvians with the Jewish community past and present.


This website is dedicated to and honors the unique work of Christine Usdin ‘zl (1947-2013) whose tireless translation, photography, story telling and correspondence greatly expanded and supported research of Latvian Jewry.

The Jewish research database builds on Christine’s large set of translated records by allowing, for the first time,  search by family name of thousands of birth, death, marriage and divorce records.

Our hope is that easier access to names will reconnect more Jews to their ancestors and more Latvians to their Jewish neighbours.
