A researcher in England has found some information on a possible ancestor.
The information came >from the records of the "Russian Jews Committee" in
England, in which it was stated that he was >from Novo Grudech - Grodno, his
property there had been destroyed by fire in June 1881, and he was applying
for aid >from the "Mansion House Fund". The payment was made in 1885.

In WOWW and the ShtetlSeeker I found Novogrudok,Byelorussia (which I know is
now Belarus). My questions are:
1. Is Novo Grudech the same as Novogrudok?
2. Was Novogrudok in Grodno or Minsk Guberniya? The 1834 Grodno Gubernia Map
from the Belarus SIG shows it in Grodno. The 1899 Minsk Guberniya Map from
Vsia Russiia shows it in Minsk.
3. Is there a Belarus Archive I can write to for further searches?

Thanks for your help,
