Shabbos meals #belarus


Does anyone know the prevalence or geographic relationship of the custom of eating dairy meals for Friday night dinner?  When I was growing up, the default dinner for Shabbos was milchig.  Both sides of my family were from northwestern Belarus, my father's side from Smargon, and my mother's from Soly, with Kruki, Lithuania in the mix. 

When I asked about milchig dinners, because my friends had fleishig, I was told that "all Smargoners ate milchig on Shabbos",  by a former resident.
