The meaning is the same, Polina. A volost is like a canton.


Was Grobin both a town and a district?
Yes.


Is Oberbartau another term for Libau?
Definitely not. Oberbartau would be the name of the district or canton
within the Grobin district.


Thank you very much for any help and suggestions. I'm going to Latvia
in
the Spring and trying to get as much information as possible.
I am jealous!! You should just enjoy yourself!
