JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Identify birthplace "Werche Volimer Gov"? #general


David Brostoff
 

I am trying to identify the birthplace of Dora (Scheine) FINKELSTEIN (ca.
1885-1906).

Her 1907 passenger list gives Werche Volimer Gov (or perhaps Gav).

Gov seems be an abbreviation for gubernia but I can't find anything close to
Volimer in the list of Russian governates here:
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_governorates_of_the_Russian_Empire>

Her naturalization petition gives Verhov, Rus., which I assume is the Werche
above, although I cannot locate it using the JewishGen Gazetteer, etc.

Other documents give only Russia.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

David Brostoff
