Belarus SIG #Belarus Advice/contacts in Belarus #belarus

I am planning a trip to Belarus in May to research family that lived
in Rakov and Volozhin. I am hiring a guide in Vilnius who will be
taking us around. I hope to interview people in both places about
memories of my family, including seventeen relatives killed in the
Holocaust. I also will be arranging for someone to do research in the
archives in Minsk. I would appreciate getting advice >from anyone who
has done a trip like this or has contacts in Belarus. How likely are
the residents (none of them Jewish I assume) to share memories? How
cooperative/helpful are people in the Minsk archives likely to be?
Thanks.
