In Reply to: Re: Ignatowicz - Please help to end a 12-year search. by Marie Bravo of 2700

Grandfather (surname is spelled IGNATOWITZ) arrived at Ellis island (via Antwerp) 5/17/1909. Manifest states he was 20 yrs old, giving him an appx dob of 1889. He was heading for brother-in-law's (Ivan, later anglicized to John, Michal/n?czyk) in Bklyn NY. He lists leaving mother, Aniela, behind in village.

He was emigrating from Krewo, which had been founded on the Kravlyanka River in 1264. Today it still exists w/a population of 726.

From late 18th century to 1920 derevnya/village Krevo had a Greek Catholic, Roman Catholic and an Orthodox Church. Oshmyany was the uyezd/county > Vilna gubernia/region > Tsarist Russia til 1917. During the Interwar Period (1920-1939) it was officially called Krzewo > Osmiana powiat/county > Wilno wojiwodstwo/region > Reconstituted Poland. Technically Poland had not existed as a geopolitical
entity for the previous 125+ yrs. In 1940 the village was included in Smorgon county > Grodno. Post WW2 this region became a part of SSR Belarus, under Soviet domain until 1991 when Belarus was declared independent. Today the village is still in Smorgon county > Grodno region > Belarus.

Some older RC Church Registers have been filmed by LDS. As per http://archives.gov.by/eng/index.php?id=360168 please note that church registers from late 19th century to early 20th century are still in RAGS. You should call your nearest Belarus Embassy or Consulate and ask how you need to proceed to obtain records from RAGS. I am pretty sure they will tell you that you will need to request a PRIVACY RELEASE document before making any requests for Grandfather's birth certificate. They will fill you on all detail.
