Indexing Cemeteries in Belarus-- Polish, Jewish and Belarusian Graves!
What I like about this modern world is a thing called Go Fund Me. We, the people can add a few dollars to help out in a worthwhile campaign. The poet Robert Burns did subscriptions before he put out a book of poems. This is very much the same thing. One of my genealogical contacts works as a Guide/Translator in Belarus. He is presently also working on Indexing Cemeteries in Belarus. He has been doing this project alone, with help from one benefactor. He really needs funds to keep his indexing project of graves free and online. If your people immigrated and their paperwork says "Russian Poland", many of these people came from what is now Belarus.
