JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Russian Gubernyas #general


I would sincerely appreciate your assistance - My maternal grandparents came
to the USA in the 1890s - My Grandfather unquestionably came >from around
Kiev, possibly >from a Shtetl named Kaslov which would have been in the Pale -
My Grandmother phonetically said that she came >from GALARNI GUBERNI, which I
have been unable to locate - as she was the daughter of an Agricultural
Scientist, she was raised on the estate of a Count which would suggest that
this location was
not in the Pale - Have you any knowledge of a Gubernya which sounds like
this? I
was told that there was an area near Minsk called Galarna which was an
agricultural area but do not know if this was a Gubernya or not. Thanks,
Jerome Cohen
