I am hoping someone could help me. My family is lutheran and oral history has it that they came from Belarus. Some place names mentioned: Tomoshevik (possibly Timoshevichi?) Would this area be lutheran? Ancestors spoke Russian, Polish and German. Left secretly in 1870 to avoid serving in Russian army. Ancestor talked about "circuit riders" preaching in village as no preacher lived in village. Also spoke of Cossacks in neighborhood. Is this area a likely area for this to happen. Ancestors originally came from Germany. Surnames: Stolp and Blum

Thank you for your time.
