Belarus SIG #Belarus Search Engine of Holdings in the Belarus Archives #belarus
I accidently found a search engine in English that will find what records
are in the the Belarus Archives, not only the National Historical Archives
of Minsk and Grodno, but all the other archives as well.
Go to: <http://archives.gov.by/eng/index.php?id=search>
To get an idea of what is in the archives, do a search on "Jews" and then do
a separate search on your town or shtetl. You may have to try spelling
variations for your town or shtetl because I do not think the database
recognizes "sounds like".
Be sure to click on the individual search results to see the details along
with the fond, etc.
If you find something exciting, please share it on this discussion group.
