You can find information about the towns by looking in the Encyclopedia
Judica. I think most libraries carry the complete set.
I found a history on Bykhov in there as well as Mogilev and several other
towns I was looking for.
Bykhov, Byel. (Bichov, Bychow, Byjkov, Staryi Bykhov) pop. 2,675; 133
km (79.80 miles) NW of Gomel. I believe my grandfather Jonah Dvoskin
came >from there. Then he married my grandmother >from Mogilev and since
they are so close I am sure I am correct.
