_Galarny Guberni_, which I have been unable to locate - as she was the
daughter of an Agricultural Scientist, she was raised on the estate of a
Count which would suggest that this location was not in the Pale - Have
you any knowledge of a Gubernya which sounds like this? I was told that
there was an area near Minsk called Galarna which was an agricultural
area but do not know if this was a Gubernya or not.
