FRIEDLAND(ER) From Belarus #general

Samuel Gelfand

hello Genners,
I'm sure others have encountered greater difficulty in researching Belarus
ancestors as compared to Lithuanian or others. Recently by Family Search genetic
testing I have made contact with an almost certain second couisin (FRIEDLAND(ER));
connection at the great grandparent level. She has in her possession a near
illegible copy of a 1935 letter to her grandmother FRIEDLAND >from a Harry FRIEDLAND
in Durban, South Africa written on stationery of A.L.BEINASHOWITZ, Wholesale Woolen
Merchant. Is anyone a descendant of, or have knowledge of, this family. ? It is
my understanding that only a small percentage of Jewish South African immigrants
were >from Belarus and believe this is also true for the FRIEDLAND surname.
Hopefully, someone can provide me with information that will lead to that elusive
"crack in the wall".
