Belarus Surname Index #belarus


Julian Peerutin <JulianP@...>
 

Hi,

Thanks to this index I have found the first record that recognizes my
surname (which is quite unique). However the area that this person comes
from is not a recognized name that I understand my family came from.
I tried looking trough the Shtetlseeker but came up with lots of names that
I couldn't really claim to be the one.
Can any help me and tell me where this place is and what it is called today.
Gubernia: Vitebsk
District: Rezhitsa
Town: Rezhitsa

Thanks

Julian Peerutin

I think Rehitsa uezd is in Minsk Gubernia not Vitebsk.
I found it on: www.jewishgen.org/databases/rechitsa.htm
I could be wrong-check it out.
