Pāle museum is the only one in Latvia, where it is possible to get to know better the history of the Livs. In year 2002 a research about the successors of ancient Livs begun. Today we can say that most of the Livs were not extinct at the end of the 19th century, as it was assumed before by the majority of people. The research showed that the majority of the Liv families still exsist, and live not only near Svētciems, but in the territory of all Latvia.
