LATVIAN

Latvians have settled in America since the 17th century. Their numbers were small until the Russian Revolution of 1905, after which several thousand Latvians moved here. World War II and Soviet oppression drove thousands more from their homeland in the 1940s and 1950s.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 1 percent of those people said they were of Latvian ancestry.
