I was just speaking with my mother regarding my research and she made
mention that before my ggf immigrated to US in late 1890's he was a
violinist in a orchestra in Minsk. Would this be a possible area of
research, would they keep records of members? Any help is greatly

I would be interested in this information also. My gmother's brother was a
violinist/violin teacher. Their surname was FLAX, his first name is unknown
to me. He lived in Minsk at one time. I have a picture of him ca.
1880's-1890's with a student. The picture was taken in Irkutsk, which is a
