Independent Brisk Delito Lodge #565

(Brest, Brest uyezd, Grodno gubernia)

Contributed by Jerry Seligsohn

It has been a year since I have graduated from being an independent researcher at the YIVO library to organizing landsmanshaften collections at YIVO archives. Fifty five collections later I am still presenting my Belarus name lists at this website. My archival work however brings me across the Pale to Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Moldavia. But my problems remain the same. When the names are listed in cursive, as in this collection, I struggle to get the spelling right. I do not stand behind my interpretation of some listings. Please forgive me if you think you have spotted an error.

These collections are defunct societies which have been given to YIVO by the New York Department of Insurance. Most collections have unfortunately discarded their early records and the great number of societies in their later years have limited their functions to that of a burial society. How unfortunate!

Allow me this conjecture. Many of the names on the burial lists seem to indicate that couples and siblings die within a year or two of each other. Could it be that some die of heartbreak?
