My grandfather, Abe KLEMPNER and his siblings were born in Brest-Litovsk and
until they left for the United States at the turn of the last century. While
a researcher was not able to locate my grandfather's 1883 birth record in
the Minsk archives, he was able to locate the marriage record of of my
grandfather's eldest sister and a birth record of a younger sister who died
in infancy. Since my great grandparents were born and lived originally in
Kobryn a city about 50 miles east of Brest-Litovsk, the family was
registered in Kobryn even though they had changed their residence to
Brest-Litovsk by 1880. I hope that this is helpful.
