JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: What would the name "GOLD" be likely to be in Russia (Belarus) in the late 1800s? #general

I was corrected off-line, and wish to pass on the correction: The Russian
word for gold is "Zoloto" and not "zolata". I hear more Russian than I read,
and many Russians pronounce the written "o" as a soft "ah" sort of sound.
