Białohrud / Białogród (Słownik Geograficzny translation)

Note:  Occasionally, Słownik includes two entries for a location; typically one augments the original information.  In this case, the intention seems to be to acknowledge the two spellings of the town's name.

Białohrud

Town, Lida district, at 3 meters [??] from Lida, in hilly environs, intersected by the Dzitwa and Nieciecz rivers. Has a Catholic parish church, Matka Boska [Mother of God], built of wood in 1609 by wojewód Jan Zawisza. Catholic parish, Lida deanery, numbers 1,922 souls.

(Słownik, vol. I, p. 190)
