I stumbled across this “Nekropole” (Necropolis) website today. It seems to be like a Latvian http://www.findagrave.com. Helpful! There are two Akerfelds listed – Martins, the brother of Janis who was deported to Siberia, and Ansis – I believe I have spoken to one of Ansis’ descendants in Latvia. Note that he was from Skrunda, close to the rest of the Akerfelds.
Interesting! I have added Nekropole to my “Resources and Databases”
