    Trying to find info on ancestors from Latvia/Germany.

    Robert Tyler Newbie

      Last name Hecels (Hetzel). Alexander Johann Hetzel (1894 - 1975) - grandfather. Otillia Elsa Herrmann (1899 - 1983) - grandmother.


      The records start getting blurry as they insist they came from Latvia but everything I am finding is from Germany. They relocated to the states after WW2. Is it possible they were told to say they were from Latvia because it was so soon after the war?  Thank you for your time.
