A few days ago I ordered, among other things, a book from amazon.com called Der St. Jacobi-Kirchhof in Riga (1773-1895). It was written around 1895. It is in German. It is about, as far as I can tell, the graveyard or churchgrounds of St. Jacobs church in Riga. My father's father was baptised there. I have looked at some of the text on amazon.com and it will be interesting. It will be interesting, in part, because it is in German and I will try to figure out enough of it to make it of some use. It should be here in a week or so.
