JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen VM 3668-9: Gorodische or Gorodeya or Gorodnya-Russian Translation help #general


I have trying to solve the puzzle of the origin of my wife's family for a few
years. I now have two records >from Novogrudok uzeyd posted on Viewmate 2

1. VM 3669 1834 Revision list header

2. VM 3669 1850 Revision list header

I would like sometime to identify which town the record is from. So far I
have three candidates but no concensus yet. It would be great to match the name
in the record with a Russina map. The three candidates are:

A. Gorodische (Haradzysca) (About 30 kilometers west of Gorodeya, between
Baranavici & Navagrudok)

B. Gorodeya (Haradzeja) (94 kilometers SW of Minsk, between Minsk &

C. Gorodnya (?)
