Dear Arthur,

Unless those records were translated in the Belarus CD translations, on the
static pages of Belarus SIG, you will need to order the Mogilev Crown Rabbinate
records (seven rolls of microfilm) >from the Family History Center in
Salt Lake City. However, you might be in a location that has them permanently
(like Las Vegas NV for which I was responsible in getting a permanent set
there as I worked through the entire series).

Your researcher needs to know both Cyrillic (old) and Yiddish/Hebrew, as the
entries are in both languages. Many of the entries are scribbles, while some
are beautiful in calligraphy. One needs both languages as details are often
different in both.

That index was compiled >from the records itself by the officials in Mogilev
at the time the records were prepared, and only lists the father's name, not
the child's name. The actual records are very good, if you can read them
(both languages!).

Good luck!
