Dear fellow researchers
I hzvd documents indicating my Fogel family is from Rivne, and some documents state they are from Rovno.  Is this the same town?  Also is Rivne or Rovno
the name of a region, an oblast perhaps under Tsarist Russia?  The conflicting forms were filled out from 1913 through 1940.  Thank you for your help.
