The Polish Village of Gogole

One of the places that appear in the records of my Suwiński relatives was called Gogole.  There are two brief records of this village in the Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego i Innych Krajów Słowiańskich (Geographical Dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland and other Slavonic Countries).

Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Słownik Geograficzny entry for Gogole. Translated from the Polish, the entry reads:

     Gogole-wielkie and  Gogole-steczki, two villages in the Ciechanów Powiat, Gołymin Gmina, and Pałuki parish, about 13 versts from Ciechanów and about 5 versts from Pałuki.  In 1827 Gogole-wielkie had 20 homes and 133 residents, while Gogole-steczki had 5 homes and 35 residents.  Today, Gogole-wielkie has 19 homes, 210 residents, and 151 morgs [in the Russian partition 1 morg = 1.388 acres] of settlements, and Gogole-steczki has 9 homes, 61 residents, and 151 morgs of settlements.  In the village of Gogole-wielkie there are a few larger folwarks [large manorial farms].
