Belarus SIG #Belarus Files for Novogrudok District Records - Closed after Sept. 15 #belarus
David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
I have just been notified that access to records for Novogrudok District
will be closed for a long time after September 15, 2002. The archive
frequently closes portions of their holdings to do preservation and
restoration. After they are finished, the records are again made available.
The following shtetls are impacted:
As most of you know, I do not recommend researchers. When a researcher fails
to find your family records in the archives because they just aren't there
and you get negative report >from a researcher, I don't want to hear the
complaints. That being said, one of the researchers who I have personally
used is offering to do research prior to Sept. 15 for the shtetls listed
above. Time is of the essence as there is less then a month left before the
records will be closed.
If you want to get something about your families >from these places you must
contact the researcher ASAP.
Here are his terms:
Maximum of USD 175 if he reconstructs the family tree down to the mid XVIII.
There is a basic charge of USD 75, which is part of the above amount, which
must be paid if the researcher finds nothing and sends a negative report. If
you want two surnames researched the maximum charge is USD 220, 3 surnames
will be USD 260.
I have no other information other then what I have noted above. All
arrangements, payments, questions, etc., are between you and the researcher
in Minsk <minskhist@...>.
This message is posted as a service to members. I have no financial
interest and this should be considered a one time announcement of a
genealogical service as allowed by JewishGen guidelines.
