One hint here: If nothing turns up when you enter the original country
as Belarus, try Poland. I've found many listings there that were not
listed under Belarus.

I would suggest consulting Prof. Jerry Esterson's extensively
documented JewishGiven Names Database under Databases in JewishGen:

Subject: [belarus] names, nicknames, multiple language names, etc.

Does any compilation exist for variations on first names.?

For examples, I have ancestors and relatives named Abraham who were also
called Abram, Avrom, Avcei.
