RUSSIAN/BELARUSIAN BORDERS #belarus

Hi BelarusSigers! This is my first post here. Some of my relatives were
Lubavitchers in a couple of border towns along the Belarus/Russia border of
today. Some were Shapiros in SURAZH, on the current Russia side, while
others were KABAKOVS in a town called Kanichi, in the Kostjacovici
district, a few miles inside Belarus. Where would genealogy-related records
for these places be? Belarus or Russia? Minsk or Bryansk? I have even been
told that Surazh records can also be in CHERNIGOV, UKRAINE. Any thoughts?
