J Wexler <wexler1980@...>
I am researching the surname: WEXLER/VEKSLER >from the
village of Kalin which is 3.5 kilometers >from Kurenets
in Belarus and 50 kilometers North NW of Minsk.
I have a record of my great grandfather SHMUL MENDLE
VEKSLER born 1855 in Kishinev and it states his father
YOYNA/YONA VEKSLER wife PESYA was >from Kalin.
I have been unable to find out any information about
Kalin except that there were only @ 500 Jewish people
living in the village.
Does anyone know of this village or any information?
I have looked into Kurenets, in the Yizkor book is
where I found it was 3.5 miles away, but am very
interested in Kalin.
