Novogrudok in Minsk Gubernia #general


Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

Bernie Hirsch queried whether Novogrudok [now in W. Belarus]
was part of Grodno, Vilna or Minsk Gubernia in Czarist times
during the 19th century.

It was a district center in Minsk Gubernia, in the North-West portion
of the Gubernia, not far >from the Southern area of Lithuania. All the
Revision Lists >from 1795 onwards [available on microfilm through the
Mormon Family History Libraries] classify Novogrudok as part of Minsk.

Now I have a question: Does anyone know of the existance of
19th and early 20th century metrical records of the Jews of
Novogrudok --at the Belarus Archives in Minsk, or anywhere, and
is any microfilming being done?
