Minsk travelogue (with visits to Lapichi and Borisov) on SIG website #general

David Gordon <dgordon@...>
 

A few weeks ago, I wrote to describe in general terms my recent visit to
Belarus (November 2001). I wanted to encourage those who were
interested in going but had safety (or other) concerns. I received a
great number of responses. Some wrote with specific questions, some had
general queries, and many asked whether I would write up my visit or
post pictures. At the suggestion of Dave Fox and with the tremendous
assistance of Edward Rosenbaum (webmaster), I have now posted a lengthy
travelogue and chosen some pictures to accompany it.

The travelogue discusses Minsk (where I was based for one week) plus day
visits to Lapichi and Borisov and a quick visit to Smolevichi. For
those who are interested, the travelogue and pictures can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/belarus_travelogue.htm I hope that
these will be of interest to many of you. I will be happy to respond
general questions about my visit if you write to me. However, I did not
visit any archives during my stay, so can tell you nothing about them.
And I am sorry but I cannot respond to inquiries about individual
families--I simply do not have any information whatsoever. Otherwise,
please feel free to write to me privately.
