It is very important to know the education level of one's ancestors. The acquired education tells you a lot about the life and the livelihood of a person, and one may hope to find some further information about ancestors in the documents of appropriate education institutions.

It was planned to gather a lot of information in ROOTS=SAKNES about education institutions in the region of Latvia. And in fact I have collected some information about schools and their pupils. I hope it will be presented in the nearest future.
