Belarus SIG #Belarus Searching: DMITROVSKY & ELKES #belarus

Sidney Katzen

The DMITROVSKY and ELKES families came >from Kamenets-Litovsk, Grodno
dist. (now Kamyanyets, Belarus) and left en masse at the start of the
last century. In Ireland the DMITROVSKY called themselves Samuels and
typically in Israel, where many went in the 1930, Meiter. In
Kamenets-Litovsk, we have Hirsch (Zvi) and Keils DMITROVSKY and also
Isaac Michael (or maybe Jacob!) Elkes.  There are several other
DMITOVSKYS in that shtetl, but I can't make the connection. Does anyone
know anything about these families.  If so, please contact me at
