Thankyou for replying with details, it is interesting to learn more, piece by piece. I am pleased you were able to make connections with family in Latvia. I hope I used the correct grammar, verbally we always said Sveiki, but I often see Sveika in the written form. Maybe it is Sveika when addressed to a female. I obviously only learnt a few Latvian words. Regards, Ingrida.
