Re surname Elin, saw web reference some time ago (and now maddeningly unable
to find) linking surname Elin to village/shtetl of Elna (spelling variants
Yelna, Jelna) ENE of Pinsk. It's 3km west of NS road >from Minsk, just
opposite village/shtetl of Lenin, which is 3km east of main road at same
intersection. I noted village name, but did not visit, when I went to Lenin
last June. My website www.watermargin.com/lenin gives an idea what villages
in the area look like.
