I am looking for any information about the town of Divin in Poland. My grandfather, Sidney Sokol (He was called Kuzel in Divin) came to Brooklyn New York in 1923(?) and was part of the Divin society, a group of Divin-ers who met once a month to have dinner together and to remember the old country. He told me lots of stories about growing up in Divin and I have always wanted to know what happened to this town after World War Two. Are there any surviving family members who stayed in Poland? If anyone out there has any stories about the town of Divin or people who lived in it, I would love to hear them. Even though I have never been there, the town is always close to my heart.

I read in my grand mother's old letters that her father died in Brest of complications due to "mercritis" or "mercitis" and that the region is beautiful.

Is it possible to find a postal code for Dubnowicze (Dubnovichi), Belarus. I would like to send a letter to a Church there.
Still looking for the Family Szpakowski from Bokinicze (Bokinichi).
Sergei: Postal code of Dubnovichi, Pinsk district is 225733
Hania: selo/village Dubnovichi > Pinskij raion/district> Brestskaja oblast/region> formerly Minsk Guberniya > today Belarus, latest zip code for village is 225733.
Bokinichi is a hamlet w/o its own post ofc and uses the post ofc in Dubnovichi, which is appx 1.4 miles W of Bokinichi.
Bare in mind that technically there was no such geopolitical entity as Poland from late 18th century to 1919. This was Russia in that timeframe.
Orthodox & Uniate (Greek Catholic) Church Records
Do you have a death certificate for Father? I suspect that records from 1923 would still be at RAHS (district archives) in Pinsk, but you will need to apply for a intl privacy release. RAHS generally do not perform genealogy research. They supply you w/specific documents, like birth certificate or matrimonial document. In order to get privacy release, you will need to contact nearest Belarus Consulate or Embassy and request a privacy release to get whatever documents you need. Cost should be in the range of $75USD.
Have you been in touch w/Village Administrator and made inquiries re any surviving family still in Father's ancestral village? Communicating in Russian is ideal!!! Ask Serhej/Webmaster to recommend someone to help w/translation.

My father was born in 1912, I have his immigration papers that say hi place and country of birth was Norzesc/Poland,and nationality is Pol.Whiteruthenian. But his marriage papers done in germany says Brest-Litowsk. I can not fine the place Norzesc/Poland. I found Brest. Can anyone help me. His name was Wasyl korz
Sergei: ---
Hannia: My guess is that you ancestral Norzesc/Poland is Nurzec in Podlaskie Region>NE Poland. At one point this was part of Brest Litovsk.

Sergei: (translating from Russian): Looking for Goldman Zelike. Immigrated from Belorussia probably from Skarodnoe in 1917-1918. Wife's name was Cilya (Tsilya?). He had brothers Bercha and Girsh (was born in 1896). Father's name was Goldman Khaim Zelikovich, mother's name was Feiga Mordukhovna. We've got a parcel from him in 1970's. Then we lost contacts.

My late mother-in-law Dvorah Lerman and her sister Nechama lived in the village of Domachevo near Pinsk until 1921. After a pogrom, they were taken to South Africa in a group of 200 orphans by the philanthropist Isaac Ochberg. The girls' story features in my book for 10 - 13 year olds which will be published by Farrar Straus Giroux in 2006. Apparently an older sister was traced in Palestine at some point. Does anyone else have a connection with Domachevo/Domachewa?

Is it possible to find an address of St. Prakseda Church in Dubnowicze (Dubnovichi), Belarus. My family is Szpakowski from Bokinicze (Bokinichi). I have a baptismal certificate from St. Prakseda Church in Dubnowicze from 1923 for this family. I would also like to know how these towns are spelled in Russian if possible. I have some Russian maps of the area. Any information or suggestions would be most welcome.
