Ivan Lukanovich Довлюд
Ivan Lukanovich Dovlud
Ivan was born in the village of Morozovichi in Belarus. The village is southwest of Novogrudok and northwest of Baranavichy. He was Eastern Orthodox, and his church likely was Morozovichskaya Rozhdestvo Bogoroditskaya Church in Morozovichi.
Ivan served in the military for the White Russians before the 1917 Revolution. As a consequence, after the Soviets (Red Russians) took power, Ivan was sent to Siberia for a few years, after which he was able to return and rejoin his family.
He was the son of Luka Nikolaev DAVLUD (1834-1898) and Agafia Alekseeva KAMOVA (b. abt 1845).
He was the brother of Martha and Sofia.
He was the husband of Evdokiya ANASKEWICZ. They married September 28, 1897, in Pinsk, Belarus.
He was the father of Trofem, Nadia, Irena, Michael, Anastasia, Sergei, and Dyonizy.
Modern-day variations of the surname in Belarus include DOVLUD, DOVLYUD, and DAVLYUD.
In Russian, the surname was written thusly: Довлюд (and sounds like "Dovlyud"). In Russian, the first O is not stressed. It almost sounds like an A. In Belarus, the surname is written variously as Довлюд and as Давлюд. The final D sounds almost like a T. When that part of Russia became Poland, the alphabet changed from the Cyrillic alphabet to the Latin alphabet. In Polish, W sounds like a V. Polish authorities sounded out the surname in Russian and wrote the surname in Polish as "Dowlut" or as "Dowlud."
