Yuri Dorn will present a brief history of Jewish Belarus, followed by a description of the records available for research in Belorussian archives. He will explain which records you can expect to find and will suggest the best strategy for approaching one’s research. Remember that your Lithuanian, Ukrainian, Polish, etc. ancestors may have migrated from Belarus to these other areas. Or vice versa.
Yuri Dorn is a well known genealogist, specializing in Jewish genealogy and ancestral tourism to Belarus. He founded Jewish Heritage Research Group in 2002, which consists of professional historians, genealogists, and certified English speaking guides. Yuri and his staff are not only working in Belorussian archives and arranging ancestral tours to Belarus, but they also put a lot of effort into restoration and preservation of Jewish heritage in Belarus.
