WESOKY (in my transliteration >from Ryssuan VYSOKY with meaning "tall")
was rare name in Minsk Gubernia. I am familiar with references to the
name >from town of Minsk and Samokhvalovichi of Minsk uyezd (district).
Samokhvalovichi is Minsk suburb now. Most possibly it is one extended
family lived in both locations.

In regards to Adar Belinkoff's question of May 8, I was told that my
family
name, Wesoky, means "long" or "tall" in some eastern European
languages.
