Re: Research individuals in France #france

I don't know how I missed this thread over the summer, but I am very interested in finding information about a relative from the Mogilev guberniya in what's now Belarus who supposedly lived in France for several years.

According to family lore, my grandfather's eldest brother (b. 1878 or 1879) "married a French woman and moved to Paris," returning to the USSR after the Russian Revolution.  His name was Shaya-Leizer Moroz, but he may've gone by the name Aleksandr Moroz.  I don't think he ever became a French citizen.  I've looked through the Paris archives without success; it's possible he lived somewhere near Paris rather than in the city itself.  He may have been a tailor.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone with access to French records can search for my great-uncle.  Thanks.
