SHNAYDER from Opalin #ukraine


I recently received my g-grandparents 1910 marriage record, Moishe SCHNAYDER and
Sheine TOKER. They married in Brest, Belarus (fka Brest-Litovsk, Poland) but
according to the marriage record, Moishe is >from Opalin, Volhynia Gubernia, Ukraine.
Has anyone come across any information on the town of Opalin? All I have is the one
paragraph in the Encyclopedia of Jewish Life.

Also, Miriam Weiner's Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Muldova shows only a 5 year block
of records (1859-1864 birth) at the State Archives in Lutsk. Does anyone know the
procedure for requesting a search for records at this location? Any tips? Any idea
where other records might exist?

Thanks for any help
