Family Group Record:
Ivan DOVLUD and Evdokiya ANASKEWICZ

Ivan Lukin DOVLUD and his wife Evdokiya Adamova ANASKEWICZ married in 1897 in czarist Russia. Until shortly before 1920, they lived in a small village called "Dubatovka." The village was west (and slightly south) of the city of Novogrudok, and east (and slightly south) of the larger village of Morozovichi. The village of Morozovichi is at 53 32' north, 25 34' east.

The family was connected to an Orthodox church located in Morozovichi. Records found in the National Historical Archive of Belarus, in Minsk, show family marriages and baptisms at the church, which was called "Morozovichskaya Rozhdestvo Bogoroditskaya Church." During World War II, the church was burned to the ground. It was burned by the local people because they were told by partisans that there was a military order to burn the church. The partisans gave the people of Morozovichi brief advance warning, which allowed the people to save records and icons and burn the church building on their own.

By 2011, the only physical sign of that old church building is a set of steps, surrounded by tombstones in a wooded setting. But the records survive in the National Archive.

From 1930 until 1938, the family lived in Pinsk at Derevannoi 39, in their own home. Felix was a carpenter; he also served in the Polish Navy. In 1945, both Irena and her husband died. Irena was found dead in bed by her sons; that day she had returned from a secret meeting with her husband. Her husband was in hiding and being hunted by the Soviet NKVD because of his Polish military connections. According to Irena's brother Trofem's wife, in a letter written in 1960 to Irena's surviving brother, Irena died of a heart ailment. Her husband had been arrested by the NKVD the night before. Irena's husband (Felix) died "about three months after. ... Felix contracted chekhotka." The word "chekhotka" most likely meant tuberculosis. When Felix's body was returned to the four sons, the orders were that the coffin not be opened; that would be with the man having died of a contagious disease. Almost immediately, a priest's housekeeper took the four orphaned sons to Gniezno, where the boys grew up in an orphanage.

The records indicate that Sergei died of starvation when he was two years old. However, the story that was told in the family was that he died after having fallen through the ice while ice skating; he did not drown, but he died because of having been in the ice water. The story of falling through ice does not fit with the area around the village of Dubatovka. There are no ponds, lakes, or bodies of water near Dubatovka.
