Heinrich Libbert 1901,Riga, Latvia.
Greetings to the Libberts Forum,
My name is Paul Libert, I live in Russia. Have anybody ever heard about the Libberts family lived in Riga, Latvia in the beginning of the 20 century? Looking through some old papers keeping in our family archive, I've found the Christening Certificate of my related through grandmother Elsa, let me put it here partly, as it is, for your clearing up the matter:
The Certificate of Birth and Christening, #280, roll of 1893.
…Baptized on 25 of December, 1893 as Elsa Alexandra Libbert, legitimate.
Father: Machines Builder Heinrich Wilhelm Leonhard Libbert, of the Lutheran
Mother: Elisabet Charlotta Libbert, inborn von Jablonsky, of the Lutheran creed.
God - parents: Mrs. Alexandra Braun, inborn von Jablonsky; spinster Lilly Libbert;
merchant Arthur Libbert.
Accordance of this excerption with the listed above is witnessing sub fide pastorali et sigillo ecclesiae, Riga, the 8 of August, 1901. Oberpastor of the Synodal church,
In the upper right corner there pasted on the Duty Stamp witnessed by the seal of the Oberpastor Wilhelm Keller, at the foot of the page, in the middle,also exists the Seal of the Synodal church.
Obviously, they were having some roots in Germany and Latvia, I also know that Heinrich Wilhelm and Elisabeth Charlotta (1855 - 1936) had, except Elsa (1893 - 1964), two more daughters - Alma and Valentina, and three sons - Arthur (mentioned in the Certificate), Edgar Paul and Alfred. Edgar Paul (1886 - 1942) was my native, direct grandfather.
One letter "b" was withdrawn from the spelling of our second name during the re -registration later, already in the soviet times.
From Russia, with the best wishes of success to the Libberts posterity in the U.S., sincerely,
