The newsletter of the Historischer Verein Wolhynien E.V. reports that the Latvian State Historical Archive has digitized numerous church records and they are now available on line.  The site is available in several languages including German and English.

English - http://www.arhivi.lv/index.php?&110 

To view the documents, go to the left column and click on "Digital Archive: RADURAKSTI".  On the next page you may have to click on EN in the upper right corner for the English version.  Registration prior to viewing is required but it is free.

Of special interest is the availability of the Neudorf / Neubrow (Neidorfas-Neibrovas) records covering the years 1834-1893.  Those researching this area should note that additional years (1790-1932) not digitized are available through LDS microfilms as listed on our SGGEE Volhynian records page http://www.sggee.org/research/parishes/church_parishes/LutheransInVolhyniaKievPodolia.html near the bottom.

Some of our readers also have connections to Latvia, Brest, Minsk and other parts of this eastern region so browse around for other locations that are available.
