We must however make clear the potential limitations of our research. What are now the independent Baltic States had previously existed over many years as provinces of larger countries the Tsarist Empire, the Third Reich and the Soviet Union. The available archives are not always readily accessible and sadly due to the warfare and destruction in this region some valuable documentation may well have been destroyed. However our experience has been that it is possible in many cases to glean a good deal of useful information.
