Hi Laura
It has been a long time since last communicated. Vorotinschtina was the agro colony established by the Talalai and some other families. It is adjacent to what was the hamlet of Zavarezhye, where the post office and "general store" was located. I would say that all the founding families of V were from Mogilev city proper and maintained connections. It was only about 12 miles SW of Mogilev so rather close. How one or why one would focus on V/Z without including Mogilev city is something I do not understand, as all the families were from Mogilev city originally.
