Marriage or naturalization records #belarus


Marshall Paisner <paisner@...>
 

In 1905 My Grandfather arrived with 2 brothers and his 3 year old
daughter. At Ellis Island their name became "Paisner".
In interviewing family members I got varied clues of where they
were from. These include "Kiyev, Ukraine or Minsk, Belarus,
krazenstart, Moliva Gabernia.

One brother remained in Belarus. His name was Nacham. We think the
original name was Pevsner. but I am not yet convinced this is true.

Where does one find marriage or, naturalization records for the
early 1900's?

I hope they may have a clue as to the original city in Belarus.
Any comments would be appreciated.
