Mr. Milton Botwinick:
I admire your success in obtaining your personal infomation.
I have been unsuccessful for over 3 years. I was wondering what trail
or addresses your used in order to obtain some document of your
ancester leaving Belarus.<<<<<<<<<
I lucked out and obtained the internal passport carried by my great gm from
Minsk to Phila. from the effects of my deceased grandfather.
>>>>>>>>>My grandfather was born in Minsk (or surrounding subburbs)
in 1884. He left Belarus for Denmark in 1906.
I dont know if he leaving was dependent upon family debt
to the CZAR or if he left to avoid the 1905/06 draft
into the CZAR's war of 1905 (The Russo Japanese War).
By the way I recommend reading it, I recently purchased it
through Amazon.com and found the book very interesting.
No this never has or never will make the NY Time best reading list,
but it gave me a very descriptive type of the czars military
obligations to the country.<<<<<<<<<
Read the Samuria of vishnograd pub by JPS.
>>>>>>>> Anyway, since I got off track, I am still attempting to
get some xerox copy of his departure from Belarus, his
destination Denmark. He was also returned back to Minsk for burial
around 1915- or 1916.<<<<<<<
I cant offer any suggestions except to have someone search in the Minsk
>>>>>>Thnx for your time and enlightening letter
