ILYA, Belarus records #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

I hate to disagree with Judy because, usually, she is right on target.
However, she is a little off on her statement that the ILYA records are
not in the Vilna archive. On behalf of the Belarus SIG, I obtained an
English translation of the entire 1850 Vileika District revision list
which included ILYA. I am presently working on the 1834 Vileika District
revision list which also includes ILYA. All of these records are in the
Historical Archive (LVIA) in Vilnius.

If you have any questions about these revision lists please direct them
to the Belarus SIG.

Ilya is not the Vilna archive but, rather, the one in Minsk.>>

Re: Movie on Ukraine Visit #general

ANNE FENDRICH <AFENDRICH@...>
 

Yes, the film is "Everything is Illuminated." It is partially fantasy, but
I found a good deal of truth in it and some inspiration. The hero of the
story is a "collector" who accumulates mementos as he goes through life.
Although some of his mementos are bizarre, I find that I'm a collector as
well having my father's doggerel poetry, my mother-in-law's Pioneer Days
costume, my aunt's oil portrait, etc. As genealogists we are all
collector's in hopes of recapturing the lives of our forebears. The humor
at the beginning of the movie contrasts starkly with the history of the
grandfather's shtetl and of the final revelation of his guide's identity.

The reviewers didn't like it nearly as well, but I hope this is helpful

Could anyone please inform me of the recent movie about someone who is

Land Records in 18th Century Lithuania/Prussia #lithuania

Are the land records of Lithuania and Prussia >from the late 1700s still in
existence and have any been translated and placed in the internet? I'm
researching a story in our family that an ancestor living in the Suwalk
gubernia of Lithuania/Prussia in the late 1700s was given a land grant by
Frederick the Great.

Can anyone tell me where I can find the old archival records for Brest
Litovsk and also Zelva? I have a college friend who lives in Minsk
who is willing to search the archives for me but I am unsure if Brest
or Zelva will be there. If they are, can anyone tell me how to help
him look? I am sure it won't be easy.

for a town and in what archive they are held. Since both Brest and
