If I may ask you the following given my limited knowledge and your great knowledge of Belarus: 1.Is it possible to place an ad in a newspaper in Minsk seeking relatives? 2.Do you know of someone in Minsk who would be available for hire if I need help researching information? 3.You mentioned that the Bakinovsky family may have come from a small village with a similar name.Was it typical for peasants to adopt the name of their village? 4.I'm told my grandmother lived in an orphanage which I assume was in the village of Makavchets or Novinki in Minsk. I am aware there is a present day orphanage in Novinki.Are you aware of how I could research orphanages existing around the turn of the century (1900s)? I can't thank you enough for your assistance.
