AGOFF Baltic States is the Estonia and Latvia research center for Arbeitsgemeinschaft Ostdeutscher Familienforscher, an East German Genealogy Society with research centers throughout Eastern Europe.
“The German Baltic, ie the German-speaking population of the former Russian Eastern Seeprovinzen Estonia, Livonia and Kurland, from which the republics of Estonia and Latvia emerged in 1918, generally constituted only a self-contained, metropolitan city until 1941 And rural education and leadership. Family history and genealogy are therefore a central component of the Baltic historical literature.”
“The German population group in Lithuania originated mainly through immigration in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is not counted among the German Baltic. However, for the sake of completeness, your institutions and associations are dealt with here.”
