I just located a shetl by the name of CHAUSSKII in Mogilev.
This is listed in 1911. Does it still exist and if so what is the
name of it today. I have not been able to find it on the shetl
Check the name in JewishGen's Shtetl Seeker. In addition, YIVO's
Landsmanshaften Archive holds documents of a "Tchausser Society"
which (according to Schwartz & Milamed) was formed by folks >from
"Chaussy" in Mogilev province.

Good hunting.
