Hi, I am trying to locate my father's family (he was originally from Baltinava, Latvia) and any other relatives that I may have. I don't know where to look now as have searched and searched for ages to no fruition. Can anyone help? My fathers name was Aloizs Vizulis, his parents were named Meikuls & Veroizika Vizulis. Thx

Thx Ken, I will look into this but I have recently found out that my father served in the Latvian Legion as I have been reading up on this. I am not sure of the best place to go to to get access to any of his records.

Regards

A

I know USA has some in national archives....I suspect their are some Germany archives under SS since organizationally the Latvian legion was under the waffen SS.

Any real searches are looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack due to relative small size of Latvian legion compared to German military machine......

Also their is the probability that many records were deliberately destroyed. My Uncle was in the Latvian legion and suspects that Patton was assinated. In 1991 he pointed out there were several elderly men who fought on various sides and had decorations from warrieng armies
