Re: Tell me what happened to our family.

I may be making suggestions that you've already tried but are you a member of JewishGen's Belarus SIG and Brest SIG? If you don't know, SIG stand for special interest group. See www.jewishgen.org. Also, have you tried the new database of Shoah victims at www.yadvashem.org. Good luck Sharon Klein Acw...

Re: Oschlinan/ Mozyr

JewishGen has a great tool for just this problem. Go to the webpage below, type Oschlinan in the "town name" box and leave all of the other settings as they are. You'll get several results. Hopefully one is the correct town. Good luck!

Re: Searching for former pow or forced laborers in Norway during ww2

Sounds like an interesting project. I wish I could say I had information for you but instead I was hoping to take you up on your offer to search for an ancestor. My grandfather had a cousin Gashon/Gershon SZNAJDER who lived in Brest-Litovsk and supposedly escaped from a Russian labor camp. According...

Re: Brest-Litovski

Yes, Brest-Litovsk was part of Poland until 1943. If you look on a map you'll see that Brest is situated right along the Bug River which, at times, was the border between Poland and Belarus.

Re: Schooling in Brestz Litovski in 1911

My father lived, until he was 7 years and 6 months old in Brestz Litovski. He then traveled with some members of his immediate family to the United States. Might he have attended any school while living in Russia? You don't mention if your ancestors are Jewish but I see Yiddish as the language spok...

Re: town search

Have you tried the ShtetlSeeker on www.jewishgen.org? I didn't get any results on an exact spelling but searching using the DM-Soundex will give you some possible alternative spellings. I only got one hit for Belarus. It's worth a try regardless of whether or not your ancestor is Jewish. Good luck!

Ancestors from Brest

One branch of my family emigrated from Brest to the US in the 1920s. My gg-grandfather is Morris Schneider (Moishe Sznajder) came to the US in 1911 for a while with his brother Samuel. They were living in Paterson, NJ. Morris returned to his wife and children (and had more children) in Brest before ...
