Regarding #vasp-3 - #vap-9 Roberta Jerushalmy wrote:
Last summer I spent in Riga trying to trace my family roots. I am
pleased to enclose the archive information which conclusively shows
that Oscher Krieger came from Vashki although he belonged to the
Jewish community in Krakinov.

I hope you will find this information useful and be able to add it to
your Vashki site, and also other sites you have for other places.

Just to remind you Oscher Kruger was my grandfather and I am Roberta
Jerushalmy (nee Kruger) from Jerusalem ex Johannesburg South Africa.
