Project Synopsis

The JewishGen Belarus SIG is working to obtain 19th and early 20th century records for Jewish families from the Lida region of present-day Belarus.  A variety of records from a variety of sources will be researched.  Examples of the types of records that we hope to obtain are Jewish community records, census lists, voter lists, vital records and Holocaust-era name lists.

Key Audiences

Individual researchers with family from Lida and nearby towns in the Lida region will be the primary beneficiaries of these projects.

Project Importance

Few records are currently available to those researching Jewish families from the Lida region.  This project will seek to fill the gaps in many of our family genealogies.

Project Description.

Professional and volunteer researchers will extract data from original records, translate them into English, and enter the data into a spreadsheet template provided by JewishGen.  Once those tasks are complete, JewishGen will integrate the new data into the JewishGen Belarus Database

Estimated Cost.

$3,000-$10,000, depending on the type and number of records available.
