Belarus SIG #Belarus Introducing our new research coordinator!!! #belarus


David Feldman and I are very happy to introduce our new research coordinator,
Ruth Silver. Please give her a few weeks to come up to speed. We have
sent her a spreadsheet listing all the projects we know about. She will contact
project coordinators. If you have ideas for new research projects, please
send your ideas to her at ruth.silver@.... Ruth sent me this
information about her genealogy interests/progress:"My maternal great
great grandfather Michael (Chaim Checkel) Weinstein came to England in
1879 >from Grodno. We have not yet discovered whether this was the town or
a nearby village. My great grandmother (who was born in England) always
claimed that her family had been important people in their village, but
we have no information.I have been tracing my family for about 7 years
and have found relatives in Australia, America, Canada, and Spain. However
as yet we have made no inroads into Belarus. (my father's family from
Lublin has been much easier to trace and I have now reached the early
part of the eighteenth century).I live in Switzerland and my email
in ruth.silver@....
