Hi Alex

Whilst I can't assist on your specific enquiry, my grandmother (Kaminky) was from Grodno Guberrnia. and settled in the UK

I wanted to ask what your understanding is of this place?..the way my grandmother described it to my mother, it was like a stetl (Fiddler on the Roof images) but Gubernia is a province/county/region encompassing the large city of Grodno (now in Belarus)...what is your view?
