Sources of Information

This is a list of sources that are used to document information on these pages. Some of these sources discuss nearby communities, such as Turov, Rechitsa and Bobruisk. As there is so little information about Yurevichi, these communities are used as a historical proxy: if a major event occurred in these nearby towns, then Yurevichi was likely affected too.
