Shtetl Focus

This page focuses on the shtetlach (small villages) of Latvia, where our ancestors lived prior to the Nazi Holocaust. Following 1941, a good proportion of these shtetlach were declared Judenrein, free of Jews. We invite SIG members who have researched and/or visited their ancestral towns to contribute material to this site. We have also included links to other sites that profile Latvian towns. Our shtetlach are also part of the JewishGen KehilaLinks project.
