The Belarus—Lida Region Dual Geographics Project has two goals:
1. To help members identify a common male ancestor and/or a common female ancestor in the Lida area.
2. To help identify relationships between family branches that in recent generations may have become separated or estranged due to immigration, war, deportation, etc. These upheavals have scattered people with Lida roots throughout the world—to other countries in Europe and Eurasia, North and South America, Australia, and Africa.
