      I am posting this message I received from Ellen Renck
      <Phrases1@...>. I hope that some of you may contact her to volunteer
      to translate portions about your town and share them with the Belarus SIG.

      describe. Valentina wrote translations in strategic places in one.

      Belarus of 104 pages, illustrated with various seals. P. 105 begins the
