      Subject: Belarus Records in Vilna Archives
      From: "David M. Fox" <fox@...>
      Date: Sat, 03 Mar 2001
      On March 1, the JGSGW called a special meeting to hear Kahlile Mehr, the
      FHL Collection Development Specialist for the countries of the former
      Soviet Union, give an update on filming efforts. Those of you you
      attended the IAJGS Conference in Salt Lake City last July may have heard
      Kahlile at that time. He is the person who recommends what is to be film
      in the archives Vilna, Grodno, and Minsk as well as those in the Ukraine
      and other FSU countries.

      He announce that the filming of Jewish vital records in the Vilna
      archive had been completed, but that they had not all been catalogued
      yet and therefore were not available for viewing in the FHCs. It could
      be several months before this happens. I asked him about the filming of
      Revision Lists in the Vilna archive and he said that the FHL planned to
      film these also, but would not commit to a time when this would be
      completed.

      Mr. Mehr said there were two FHL cameras in Belarus at this time. One
      was in Grodno and the other in Minsk.

      The FHL pays the Belarus National Historical Archives xx cents per
      frame and provides them with a copy of the microfilm.
