LDS library having the 19th century records of this tiny Russian town
were pretty low, since there hadn't been any records since the mid
1920's or so, and Semen-who-went-away was one of the few who actually
*left*, as opposed to going off to war and not coming back or going to
the next town, so there's not much genealogical interest in the town.
