Marriage register/info #belarus

Leslie Leader <lleader@...>
 

My paternal grandfather Joseph (Yosef Arieh) Leader was born in Grodno
and his wife was Annie (or Ann) Leader. I do not have the family
name/maiden or birthplace info for her but I believe that her first name
might be Chaya.
My question is: are there marriage records of some description which
might help me find info for Annie? If not, how do I find out about her
shtetl, and her parents? My grandparents were married before they
emigrated to Cape Town, South Africa in 1898.

Thank you,
Les Leader,
Vancouver, BC, Canada

Just Completed Trip to Retrace My Family's Journey in 1939-1941 from Poland (now Belarus) via Lithuania, Russia, and Japan to the US #belarus

david manski <davidamanski@...>
 

My father and family were >from Lida, Poland and when the Russians
invaded in 1939, they fled to stay with family in Aishishok,
Lithuania. In August 1940, they received transit visas >from Japanese
Diplomat Chiune Sugihara in Kaunus and traveled to Moscow, where they
took the Trans Siberian Railway to Vladivostok and then a ship to
Japan. They arrived in Japan in January 1941 and then departed for the
US in May 1941.

My wife and I just returned >from an 8 week trip retracing their exact
journey through Belarus, Lithuania, Russia, and Japan. Our trip
included taking the train across Russia and ferry to Japan. During our
travels, we visited their hometown in Lida, visited the village of
Aishishok, the Sugihara House in Kaunus, Port of Humanity Museum in
Tsuruga, Japan, the Sugihara Memorial Hall in Yaotsu, Japan, and the
neighborhoods of Kobe, Japan where my family and other Jewish refugees
lived during 1940-1941. On the Trans Siberian Railway, we stopped at a
number of places, including Birobidzhan in the Jewish Autonomous
Oblast. At the start of our trip, we also had the chance to visit to
the towns of our grandparents in Konskie, Radom and Bialystok, Poland.

We wrote an extensive travel blog on our trip and would be happy to
share it with anyone who might be interested. Also, don't hesitate to
get in touch if you have questions about planning for and the
logistics of traveling in these countries.

Sources for district XIII in Budapest, 1895-1925 #hungary

District XIII was created in 1938, that's why there are no records prior. Th=

.

Vaci ut (distinct >from Vaci utca) formed the boundary between=
district V or VI, so you should be looking at those municipalities.=20

Another useful resource is the list of Budapest directories >from that area e.

You're in luck, I was just over there and know the area. Vaci Utca is a lon=
