Belarus SIG #Belarus Re: Belarus Minsk/Grodno geography - help #belarus
Steve Stein asked for help finding 4 towns (Losza, Studyonka,
Krinitzoy, Shkoritz") around Mir, Belarus
I found at least one, and would like to share my methodology.
First I went to our community pages and found the latitude/longitude
for Mir: 5327/2628.
Then i went to the radius search on our JewishGen gazetteer at
I put in the coordinates for Mir and asked for towns within 20 miles
of it, beginning with the letter S.
Skorichi, Skorychi was 6 miles NNW of Mir. Likely a candidate.
Isnt JewishGen Wonderful!?!!
