mazpuke3.GIF (425 bytes) Ethnicities in region of Latvia


Here the information of the ROOTS=SAKNES organized by ethnicities is presented. It is planned that for all of the ethnicities that lived in the region of Latvia a short review of migration history should be proposed, including migrations to Nowhere - wars, revolutions, massacres, the Holocaust etc.

The information on an ethnicity and on the life of the people could be found in this Page, and it is also scattered in other Chapters and Pages of the Site. The amount of the information made available in the ROOTS=SAKNES to this moment is not equal for various ethnicities. Please, do not think it is because of any implied or express importance level, I just either have not find relevant information yet or could not describe yet what I already have .
