4/28/2008 Hi Hope,

Apparently Smorgon was in Vilna Guberniya (Province), Oshmyany Uyezd (District) and it was the center of the Volost (Local Government).

Gub = Guberniya (Province). It's Vilna (Vilenskii) Province
Uyezd= District
Oshmanskii is the name of the District

The next-to-last line seems to be a mix of Russian and
English. Perhaps "Vol." is an error for "Bol." (Big, Large),
which is often a part of Russian placenames
