Someone asked about a Jewish "vidimosti". I rememberThe above merely confuses the issue. The similarity of the words is
only superficial; the respective first syllables of "vidimost'"
(appearance) and "vedomost'", note spelling, (gazette) are >from
different roots; the question was about "vidimost'", and the context
was "Jewish appearance".
"Vedomost' Gubern'skaya" would indeed mean Provincial Gazette.
For the record, there is no such word as "vedemost'".
