Good Morning!This is new information based on your last two responses to me. 1)Eizenija Lacis Talmanis and Karlis Ozols were married in Riga, Latvia on April 28, 1930.This is according to her "Declaration of Intention" coming into the US of America. 2) Peter Ogrin and Ilse Salinieks (she was an islander - came from an island between Norway and Sweden) had four children.Liene was my grandmother's (Eizenija) mother.Liene had a brother by the name of Jekabs.Jekabs and his wife Asha had five children.His daughter Olga married Andrew Briedis and they had seven children (Rosa Austrums, Miriam Briedis, Janis, Peters, Valis, Leopolds, and Bruno).Bruno married Vilma and had five children (Vija, Uldis, Janis, Maija, and Ilga).Uldis and Janis (born in Germany) came to the United States.I was able to find information on Uldis and Janis.My grandmother wrote that many stayed in Latvia. 3) On the back of a picture with a home, I believe it was my grandmother who wrote "Runcu maja". 4) The marriage certificate from the Displaced Camp for my parents has written on the top left corner "Latviesu Ev.
