Welcome to all our Belarus "cousins."
As some of you might know, I have been researching Mogilev city, Gorki
(near to Mogilev), Zavarezh'ye and Vorotinschtina (a village and its
closest agricultural colony established 1830 about 18 km south southwest
from Mogilev proper). Lupalov (the southern end of Mogilev city), alsofigures in our searches, as well as Chaussy and Bobruisk. On the road
from Bobruisk to Mogilev is also a small bump called Yasin, which alsofigures.
Sorry I missed the formation of the SIG in Los Angeles. I was planning to
come but a family emergency kept me away. Thanks to David and others for
taking the initiative.
The names and places I am researching include the following (there are
even more appearing daily!):
TALALAY, TALALAI: Mogilev, Zaverezh'ye, Vorotinshtina, Bobruisk, Minsk,
Baranovichi, Gomel, Moscow, St. Petersburg. In Mogilev >from about 1790 to
present. Also, Novosibirsk, Siberia, as well as Israel and America (new
immigrants). David-goroduk also features in search.
