Belarus SIG #Belarus Smorgon, Kobrin, Svenciany Research #belarus


Mindie Kaplan <rayvenna@...>
 

I guess the logical follow-up question is how do we get a research project
started for our shetel(s)? I keep getting referred back to LitvakSIG which in
turn bounces me back to Belarus SIG. I know the older records are in
Lithuania, but LitvakSIG is no longer dealing with those areas (at all for ANY
time period) since the towns are now in Belarus.

So-- where do I go >from here? It doesn't make sense to me to pay for
individual research when I can donate to a SIG and have the information
available for everyone. (I'm mostly interested in Smorgon, Kobrin, Svenciany,
and the surounding areas-- anyone know where Sinack/Simack is?)

Help!
