Lomes of Skidel #lithuania

Please excuse the confusion of a newbie. Is Skidel in the Grodno
Gubernyia in this SIG or in Belarus? My grandfather (born 1893 in
Bialystok) considered himself a Litvak.

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Skidel is in today's Belarus and in the area
covered by the Belarus SIG. However, "Litvak-land" -- the area
in which people considered themselves Litvaks -- was broader than
the boundaries of the country of Lithuania.
