POZNIAK and KRUL families from Benitsa, Belarus / Lithuania #belarus #lithuania

Amit Gnatek

Hello all,
I'm looking for the (Abe) POZNIAK and (Chana) KRUL families from the town Benitsa, currently in Belarus (but also appears in LitvakSIG).
Are there any more sources available for this town?
Best Regards,
Amit Gnatek

Dear Amit,
i´m researching all KRULL;KRUL;KROLL;KROL Family connection too.
especially Julie Kroll from near Wronki / Poznan Region.
Julie Kroll was born 9.6.1865   ,  Father Michael Kroll  ; Mother Juliane Grundmann 
She married Bernhard Braunholz 1864 in Stajkowo (near Wronki).
I also have also KROL; KROLL; KRÓL   list datas from KZ Kulmhof/Chelmno and Paris Shoa Memorial Archives.

best wishes
Jan Braunholz

Is this the town?


Byenitsa, Беніца, Bienica, Benitsa populated place 54°21' N 26°33' E G Belarus 51.3 miles NW of Minsk 53°54' N 27°34' E

It seems this is a hamlet in the region of Minsk.  Currently about 138 residents.

I am also searching a very tiny "town" that today is in Poland (Daliowa / Daljowa.)  I have found it impossible to find any records for my tiny town or the people that lived there.

The only thing I can suggest is to try searching at The JewishGen Unified Databases for each variation of the town name.  Byenitsa,  Bienica, and Benitsa

Do the same at databases such as www.familysearch.org and Ancestry.com
You can put the town name in the birth field and leave everything else blank.  That's something that works well with small towns.
