To all Minsk / Belarus researchers....
Recently I received the first file containing Minsk Birth records. These
records are one of the first files that will be available to those
researchers making a donation to this project. The file has over 1000
family names and listings for people born in the 1880's in Minsk (town,
uyezd and gubernia.) What an exciting find and addition to BelarusSig
researchers! I look forward to receiving more files as soon as enough funds
Help fund these files. Read the information below and please make a
donation to help all Minsk / Belarus researchers.
Thanks and Good Luck with your research.
The Belarus SIG has recently gotten access to some records >from Minsk that
are not in the archives in Minsk and have not been filmed by the Family
History Library. These records are primarily for Minsk City, but some of
them also include a few shtetls in Minsk District.
Some of the records included are:
1. birth records 1866 Zaslsavye
