Looking for Bernatovich and Misiewicz
Hello, I'm looking for my ancestors, they were called Bernatovich (Wicz) and Misiewicz. They came from Dabraulyany, Smarhon (near Svir) and I believe they were Roman Catholic. I have not found their name on the parish list (Svir), however their neighbours were on there. I don't know their ethnicity as I get told different things, I got told that they are Ethnic Poles, but they only spoke Russian and even named their kids Russian names, etc. Could anyone help? For reference, their full names are Józef Bernatovich/Bernatowicz (Polish papers) and Józefa Misiewicz. Thank you.
Also, I got told that they were ethnic Belarusians/Rusyns, what do you think?
