The archives of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Grand Rapids holds ca. 5 ft. of correspondence concerning Lithuanians, Latvians, and Ukrainians in various parishes of this 11-county diocese in western Michigan. Letters date from 1883, when the diocese was founded. They are not categorized according to nationality but form parts of different parish and personal files. There is also information about Bishop Jazeps Rancans, exiled auxiliary bishop of Riga, Latvia, who lived in Grand Rapids for nearly 20 years before his death in 1969. Assistance of the archivist would be necessary to locate relevant items. Access by appointment only.
