What or where is Divirol #names


Butch Hill
 

I have a photo of some missing family members that was dated 1917. The back has some information in Yiddish. Recently I uploaded it to Viewmate and someone was kind enough to translate it for me. One section contains the phrase "In Divirol with the husband." Of course, that sounds like she is in a place called "Divirol" with her husband. But, I've searched for references to "Divirol" as a place and/or as word with a special meaning. But, I can't find it anywhere. Is anyone familiar with a place of that name or of any other meaning associated with that word?
 
I've attached a snapshot of the back if it's of any help. The phrase is contained on the upper portion of the right-side.
 
This photo and the writing on the back is the only information I have about these individuals (my grandfather's sister and family) as they eventually disappeared. So, any additional insight would be of great value.
 
Thanks so much for any assistance.

Good evening,
 
I would think Divoril is Devorah. And her husband.

I would read the last letter not Lame"d but Tsad"i.
and I have found a place Dvorets, in Grodno goubernia ~120 km WS to Grodno and ~ 160 km S to Vilno.
Does it do for your family origin?

There are a list of possibles in the Jewishgen Gazetteer. Take a look to see what you like, using 'sounds like'.  If you have an idea where it was, you can whittle down the list.
 
The gazetteer is great, as it has every little town in it, and lots of Jews lived in little towns. The Jewish Communities Database has only the major Jewish communities.

My family is from the Minsk Gubernia. The woman writing on the back of the photo was my grandfather's sister. My grandfather and his brother both married women from Swerznie. So, I suspect the brothers were originally in that vicinity. The location of Dvorets for a sister fifteen years after their immigration is reasonable. Thanks very much!

Try putting the Hebrew letters for the town in Google and see if you get any hits.
