Gelfand Family Genealogical Project

As part of my long-running interest in genealogy, and due to my strong skills in Russian-English and English-Russian translating, I took it upon myself to translate an article that had been written about the family of my maternal grandfather in the local newspaper of their ancestral hometown in central Belarus. Please find the article's English translation, completed by me, below, with the link to the original article by Irina Babishevich, Senior Research Associate at the Cherven Municipal Museum, below.
