Looking for Family Records from 1920s-1930s #belarus

Jenny Rappaport <jennyrappaport@...>
 

I'm interested in finding records for my family in Belarus >from the
early 1900s through the beginning of World War II. I'm most interested
in the period of the 1920s and 1930s. I have many names (>from two
different parts of my family), but no idea where to even start looking
for the material. They don't turn up in searches of the databases on
Jewishgen.

One part of my family was >from the Vileika area, although some members
may have moved to Minsk or Smorgon. One part of my family was in
Lyakhovichi. In the case of the family in Lyakhovichi, I've written to
several archives/local governments in Belarus, but received no answer.

If anyone could advise where to go next in my research, I'd greatly
appreciate it.

Best,
Jenny Rappaport

Dear JewishGen Community,
The following message was distributed via email earlier this evening. If you are in a position to do so, please consider making a gift in memory of Phyllis by clicking here. When donation, please also provide any experiences or memories you have of Phyllis. We will share the comments with Phyllis' family.
Avraham
====
On Friday, September 6, 2019, Phyllis Kramer, long-time volunteer and Director of Education for JewishGen.org, passed away after a brief illness.

Following her retirement from IBM, Phyllis devoted nearly three decades supporting JewishGen’s important work. She taught thousands of students, and provided personal research assistance to the many people who sought her advice and guidance. A search of our Discussion Forums will reveal many hundreds of questions to which Phyllis responded.

A compassionate and courageous woman, Phyllis chose not to publicize her health situation. Instead, she continued lecturing at conferences, and teaching classes until she could no longer do so. Her advice, big-picture thinking, and strategic planning, helped pave the way for successful fundraising campaigns, content acquisition, and volunteer engagement.

In coordination with her family, we have established the Phyllis Kramer, Z'L, Memorial Fund, which will be used to help advance JewishGen's educational efforts, and the very critical work that will continue to define Phylis' legacy for many years to come.

If you would like to make a donation in Phyllis' honor, please click here.

With great sadness,

Avraham Groll
Executive Director
