RE: Hello Pastor Cannata
Yes, there is Orla in Belarus. However if he gave the name Bielsk Podlaski as well, so I am inclined to think that this is "mine" Orla, because it is 10 km from Bielsk Podlaski.
I guess your forefathers were Jews.In Orla before the Second World War lived a great many Jews who made her economy very well. In the second half of the 19th century the Jewish population in Orla was about 91%. Currently, there is not one Jew or even his descendant in Orla, but still there is left Synagogue and some Jewish buildings.
These names unfortunately do not tell me anything except Kaminsky, but this family Kamiński who live now in Orla, they are not Jews. They are catholics and they comes from Bielsk Podlaski. However I do not know them closer.
I have list of Orla's taxpayers from 1635 and 1803 years in Microsoft Word Document, if you are interested.

Hello Pastor Cannata
It is incredible! I would never have expected to read here the name of my small hometown! I am from Orla!
Do you have any relationship with Orla?

Dora Lifsitz #86976906
I linked Dora to Abraham Lifsitz; however, per his death certificate they were divorced at the time of his death. Added note to her profile. Thanks very much, Lynn
