Scarlett (Canada) in need of help with her grandfather’s history, February 2021
Thankfully g4 tours did an awesome job helping me find some living relatives in Belarus!
I was so lucky to find them, and get some answers.
It started with my finding two Facebook groups for genealogy in Belarus, and they suggested I write to the Grodno archives. This was too hard for me to do alone. I didn’t have the exact place or village where my grandfather grew up and you needed to figure that out first. So between my Mom and g4, we figured out where he did grow up. I hired them to help me with the research and the language barrier (I don’t speak Russian) and they did a fantastic job.
They were able to find some living relatives in Brest for me, and they gave them my information and we actually met on Skype!! Now we are able to complete some of our family tree and we look forward to getting to know our new relatives better.
When I started this endeavour, I didn’t think I would be able to have any success but thanks to g4, we have it completed!
