Help needed on towns--My mother's maternal kOSOVSKY/GOLDMAN cousins are pictured in Drogichin belarus yizcor book; but grammpa said his town of Drohichin was on bug river--he left to find work in odessa. Does the Bug/Bud River also run thro" the other town in belarus? some of these town spellings are lithuanian, polish, russian etc; but are they pronounced the same way? DROHICZYN DROHICHIN DROGICHIN DROCHITCHEN--which of these towns is closest to odessa? i need to know where we are from so i can try to find surviving relatives? does the name Kososvsky come from Kossovo? is Kossovo near any Drochitchen town? is it near odessa? please send a response thanks elaine
Sergei: DROHICZYN DROHICHIN DROGICHIN DROCHITCHEN - it's the same town in different spellings. Drogichin is not on Bug river, it's about 60 miles from this river. But there is a channel between Bug and Dneeper close to Drogichin (Dneprovsko-Bugski Channel).
Kossovski is an adjective formed from Kossovo (in Russian).
Odessa is about 800 km from Drogichin (or 1100 km by car).

My father, Edmund Gomulka was born in a colony called Karcz (apparently south of Brest) in 1925. His family had migrated from Central Poland. Does Karcz still exist and is there any information available on people who migrated to this region from central poland around this time?

I think your web site is very unique, I'm going to visit this site again and again!
Sergei: Thank you!
why no mention in history section when after 1945 many (1,5-2 million)poles where deported by sovjet goverment?
and the 15.000 killed poles in katyn forrest?
in total 5 million poles deported from Belarus/Ukraine/Lithuania of which 1-2 million lived in Belarus...not forgeting the jews...
also some Belarusians, Poles and Tatars sent to Siberia..during and after ww2
except this good info of these regions..
Sergei: You are right. But, sorry, I have no exact information at this time to place to the site. Especially regarding to the Brest region, because this site tells about Brest region only (not about all the Belarus).

In search of information about the "ANTONOVICH" family. My grandfather "Nykyfor Ignatovich Antonovich" was born 9 February 1885 - I believe in Vorotno. His moved to Canada (Sault Ste. Marie, ON) in 1913. His passport was issued by Baykovski administrative office in Grodno District on Tuesday 26 February 1913. Aside from his passport and a few Canadian pictures taken in the early 1900's ... we have very little information about his family. He passed away in 1949 just before my parents were married. Any information, pictures or suggestions on how to proceed further are most welcome. With much appreciation (and thanks). /David
