I know for certain my paternal great-grandfather was from Slutsk. I had long thought that his wife, Fannie Weiner (Vayner) was also from Slutsk.
I have discovered that all of my great grandparents from Slutsk were married in arranged marriages at distances of over 100 KM, which was quite surprising to see those distances.
Unsurprisingly, my researchers found no Weiner's in Slutsk. Also, there are no Weiner's (Vayner's) mentioned at all in the Slutsk Pinkas Chevra Kadisha (Burial society) records (17,842 records) via various searches ("Wein" "Vay" etc).
I am thinking this was another long distance arranged marriage with a man from Slutsk and a woman from somewhere else
I know it's a long shot, does anyone know of or is searching any Weiner / Vayner families from nearby (within 200 KM) miles?
