I am not aware of any prohibition against migration out of Russia 
prior to WW I.  There may have been issues, paperwork, and other 
things that made it very difficult.  For example, some people might 
have had to sneak out of the country because the could not get the 
appropriate travel documents.

Yes, Libau was in Russia c.1900.
