This is a follow-up to my message about using www.stevemorse.org with a
commercial website to search the U.S. census. Apparently, it is against the
rules to mention such a commercial site, and the moderator was required to
delete its name. I have already received a request privately for the name
of the site and expect to receive more, possibly too many to answer
individually. For those who are interested, please see the stevemorse.org
site, which specifies the name of the commercial site in the section on
searching the U.S. census. The person who wrote me lives in Israel, and I
have no idea whether the commercial site is available in libraries outside
the U.S.

DOMBROWSKY-POMERANTZ in Slonim, Belarus #general

Mati Dombrowsky <dombo@...>
 

Dear Sir,

My mother, Sara DOMBROWSKY- POMERANTZ, who passed away a few years ago, was
born in Slonim - Belarus. She left there parents and brothers who were
killed in the Holocaust. I'm now trying to find information about them.
Can you help me in my research? I'd appreciate it if you can give me any
address I should apply to.

The information I'm looking for is especially about:

1. Peretz Pomerantz (my grandfather), born around 1880. He was a teacher
and had a school in Slonim.

2. Yaacov (Jacob?) Pomerantz, brother of the above.

3. Yitzchak (Isaac?) Pomerantz, son of Peretz.

I'd appreciate any information you could help me get about my relatives.

Thank you for your help
