    I need a translation for this Russian text

    Could someone please translate this into english for me from Russian? It is from a mircrofilm roll from the local family history center, for the Greek Catholic Consistory for Russia from 1607-1945. The "..." after many of the Russian text means there are numbers that correspond to the page on the index (which I didn't feel the need to add). Also, can anyone also translate from English to Russian the following town names? Gancy, Dworcy, Antony, Sedrucz, Wisznia, Pruzana/Pruzhany, Grodno. Thank you!!!

    It's not Russian. It's Ukrainian (and the person who typed this text, didn't recognise some letters, some other letters just lack, і and ї are replaced by _, some other letters in names are not capilatised).

    Grodno must be Гродно (a city in W Belarus).

    I appologize... The "_" is there because the i like you said were not recognized on the Russian text typing website: http://www.stanwardine.com/russiantyper.htm

    I forgot to add them in with my regular english text. Sorry.

    Are you able to translate it even though it's ukranian?

    Essentially it's a list of juristic documents and geographical objects (churches and others). To be more or less exact in translation one should have sufficient knowledge in jurisprudence, history, religion and geography of Lviv region in Ukraine and should know necessary terms in both Ukrainian and English. It's a bit tricky to find such person.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
