Belarus SIG #Belarus Jewish records - Volkovysk, Slonim, Izabelin #belarus

Marian Brown

Dear List,

I am a newcomer to this list because I discovered through DNA testing
that my husband's Braun/Brown family probably comes >from Belarus. I
couldn't find any Jewish records in the Mormon records. Has anyone had
experience writing to archives -- in Grodno, for example?

The oldest ancestor we know of is Jacob Brown and he emigrated to the
U.S. about 1869 and was born circa 1830.

Thanks for any advice you can offer.

P.S. Would records for this area be covered in the Polan SIG?
