Dear colleagues!

"I am trying to identify the birthplace of Dora (Scheine) FINKELSTEIN (ca.
1885-1906).
Her 1907 passenger list gives Werche Volimer Gov (or perhaps Gav).
Gov seems be an abbreviation for gubernia but I can't find anything close to
Volimer in the list of Russian governates here:
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_governorates_of_the_Russian_Empire>
Her naturalization petition gives Verhov, Rus., which I assume is the Werche
above, although I cannot locate it using the JewishGen Gazetteer, etc.
Other documents give only Russia."

I think "Werche Volimer Gov" should be Cherche village in the Volyn
(represented in the document as "Volimer") gubernia of the Russian
empire.
