I retreived my uncle's Petition for Citizenship - on it is "I was bornGiven that the name has an "H" in it, you are probably barking up the
wrong tree by looking in Russia. Not every place that was in the
Russian Empire (which is what the petition form wanted) is or was in
Russia. Much more likely, your uncle was born in Ukraina.
The last syllable of "Dolhinif" is very suspicious and improbable. It
would be a good idea to scan the relevant portion of the petition
(just the word itself) in as high a definition as you can manage, so
that it will be large enough to enable people to ponder what the
letters really are, and post it on Viewmate.
