Re: "Gaditsch., Russia" #general

Well, you have rejected the opinions of the experts, so let me see if I can
come up with and alternative location. I went into Shtetl Seeker and found
Novyy Sverzhen. Then I looked by location-for towns nearby. Starting with
G, there is a Gorodzey or Horodziej, 12.5 miles to the SW. But starting
with K is Khotishche-if 'Gaditsch' is there, I suggest that it might be
Khotishche, at 5407 2539, it is 63 miles away, but in the general
neighborhood, and it sounds like Gaditch.

But don't reject Gadyach out of hand. Naomi and Alexander have correctly
identified a lot of places which people couldn't find, and people moved
around a lot more than we think. In particular, there was a great movement
from the NE Poland/Lithuania/Belarus region to Ukraine, so they might have
lived in one place and moved to another.

Actually, what you need to do is look in a broad area to see what records
are available. Unfortunately, neither Belarus nor Ukraine has a lot of
available records, but check what is available.
