Re: Finding info on great grandparents Bayarsky in Belarus (Grodno? Minsk?) #belarus


We are asked about the BAYARSKY family from Lida. There are many resources for Jewish research in Lida and nearby towns.

The JewishGen Belarus Database (which includes vital records for Lida town) and the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database at which includes census-type records.

The LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group has a password-protected site with dozens of files of translated records for Lida and nearby towns...with many BOYARSKY listings! (You can write me privately for more info).
