Re: Iazovitsa village near Lida - Where is it located? #belarus

Michele Lock

Thanks all for the suggestions. I have contacted the Facebook Lida group with my question. I joined that group about a year ago, and it never occurred to me to check with them.

I do recall a couple of months ago, someone mentioning a website that has a list or database of villages and hamlets that have disappeared, in what was the Russian Empire. Does anyone know about this website? Perhaps today the place called Urochishche Yazovets is uninhabited, but 140 years ago, there may have been dwellings there.
