Belarus SIG #Belarus Routes From Minsk to Baltic Ports #belarus

In trying to locate information on our KATZENELLENSON/NELSON branch from
Bobruisk in the Minsk area, I found lots of EIDB passenger records showing
last residence as Libau, which I understand to be the port in Latvia. I've
found the FEEFHS maps to be very useful in tracing migration routes.

"I would be really grateful for some geographical help. Our grandparents
told us they met on the boat coming over to England. We assumed this to be
from a Baltic port...Does anyone know how people may have travelled from
shtetls in Minsk to the Baltic ports?...Does anyone have a map of this area
at that time?" Mav Shaffer, Essex, England
