By researching the shtetl and the various people from Shchedrin, Parichi and Bobroisk I was able to discover the various spellings and misreadings for the ancestors. From the various WERTKIN, URETZKY and WEINER Immigration Manifests, Czedrin, Sczedrin, Shtchedrin, Szedrin, and Sedrin; Jossif WERBKIN, Czedryn; from Sterna GORELIK's manifest, Szcredrin; Bluma Mandel, Sczedryn; Schzedoin from Berko GORELIK; from Feiga GORELIK's manifest, Sezedry; from Chane OKUN, Sczednin; from Michel BASS, Sidrina; from Chaje WEINER, Szidrin; from PLOTKIN-CHAZDAN, Schzedvin; from GOLLAD and STRUPINSKY manifests, Tschedrin, Minskoi gub., Bobruiskago uiezda; from Salman GELFAND, Zodrin; Malke KAPLAN, Schjidrin; Aron GOLOD and Nachem KIMELMAN, Schzedrin; Basse Gorelik, Jzesedrin; Bioshe Gorelik, Schzedron; Jankel Finkelstein, Szudrin; Aron David Okun, Tchedryn; Chatzkel Okun, Sczerrin; Nechame Okun, Schidrin; Aisik Dubrowsky, Schzedern; Chaim Dubrowsky, Sezcdrin; Falk Dubrowsky, Schedurn. Check under Schedrin, Shedrin, Chedrin, and Chedrina. The official name varied with time, place, language, and transliteration. The current Belarus name is Scadryn. The Local official name form approved for use within the US Government by the US BGN is Shchedrin, and Shchadryn is the former name, minority language name, or variation of the native name.



The nearby Jewish towns were Parichi (Parycy today) and Bobruisk (Babrujsk)

There is no W or G in Russian, Sverdlov is the same as Swerdlow; Goloditz is the same as Holoditz. Weiner and Viner are interchangeable.
