Hi All

My research on Moshe and Paula, both >from Orla, Poland took a
dramatically turn this week, with updates >from both Canada and South

The narrative originated in Orla and ended suddenly in South Africa.

However, my research started 80 years later in Australia and has taken
me to Poland, Belarus, the Baltics, Israel, the UK, Germany, South
Africa and North America.

I share my experiences about the challenges of travelling and
researching in different archives and libraries. Top of the list was
visiting Belarus and the State Archives in Grodno.

This led me to start writing and managing KehilaLinks as a volunteer,
beginning with the Orla KehilaLink and now extending to cities as
diverse as Shanghai, Berlin, Kimberley and Perth, 24 in all:

Updates can be found at with regular posts on Moshe and
Paula's Facebook page:
and the Orla KehilaLink:

Regards, Chag Pesach Sameach and This Year In Jerusalem!
