Re: Town in Kiev Guberniya #ukraine

The Russian-language Wikipedia ( lists two towns named Vydumka in the area you suggest. Both are in what is now the Zhitomir oblast (area) of Ukraine. They were founded in 1846 and 1930, so perhaps the older one is more likely. It's in the Korostyshev rayon (region) and only had 31 inhabitants in 2001. its coordinates are 50/13E, 29/11N, which you can copy and paste into Google Maps. Brusilov is about 15 miles east and slightly north of this Vydumka.

My husband's family comes >from various towns in the Kiev guberniya.
His grandmother told of family members who came >from Vidimke or
Vidumka. I would think that this may be a small shtetl near Brusilow.
Can place Vidimke or Vidumka for me?

Researching: Lybomirsky, Wengrenovich, Tsinivoi
