Location of Bransk #belarus

Fabio Zyserman is looking for Bransk, in Grodno.
I should have used JewishGen's ShtetlSeeker to search for "all countries"
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/
Search for towns by name http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/loctown.htm
but mistakenly looked for Bransk in Belarus and would not find it.

It is in present Poland. According to
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/grodno/towns.htm
Town, District, Lat, Long
Bransk, Bielsk, 52° 44', 22° 51'

Entering the coordinates in
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/
Search for towns by location
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/locrad.htm
A radius search centered on the coordinates gives BRANSK or BRYANSK. The
link in ShtetlSeeker to Mapquest shows it is about 15 miles W of Bielsk
Podlaski and 29 miles SSW of Bialystok

Hope this helps!
