Very few people in Belarus have Internet access. Statistics says that only 1 of 1.000 Belorussians have a computer connected to Internet. All the others can't visit all these forums and web sites, read and post messages, receive and send emails. But they want to find there relatives too! So here are messages that were collected directly in the towns and villages of the Brest region. All the messages are sorted alphabetically by family name.
