Deciphering a birthplace #general


David Scriven
 

In the 1901 UK census some relatives have their birthplace as Russia: Geever Gerberne, which does not seem to exist


I imagine the census taker was making a guess as to what the foreign sounds represented. Other sources have this family coming from Kiev. Could Geever Gerberne be Kyiv Gubernia or is it somewhere else?
