To Brooke, other confused Jewishgenners,

Wouldn't it be nice if everything for which we search were easily spelled
and pronounced...

Moliff doesn't exist, but nevertheless was somektimes written on
naturalization papers for individuals who referred to their town of origin
as Mogilev (often meaning the gubernija, in Belarus). It may even refer to
the actual city of Mogilev (also in Belarus).
