Re: who are or where is Bialostoker #poland

Just checking to see if anyone replied to your question. 

If not, the area the Bialystoker is associated with is the Bialystok region which was part of the Pale of Settlement under Russia.  Since the end of World War II, the Bialystok region is part of Poland. 

Some people coming to the US joined groups (landsman or workmen's circles) of people that came from the same regions. New York had a large population of Jews from the Bialystoker area, including the largest Jewish community of Bialystok.  Lots of club and synagogue activities.

Although some records can be found the destruction in that region from WWII was massive.  I hope this helps somewhat in your research.
