The name Utay like many names of villages in that area stems from Buraten language. Burats are a nativ Asiatic folk in siberia. Utay means the side of a hill, because Utay lies on a side of a huge hill or like the scientists conjecture on an innside of a huge antediluvian river bed.
I've read about that hypothesis many years ago
but unfortunately I still don't know if it could have ever been proved. Also an example - the name of the nearly lying town Tulun is Buraten too and
means a leather sac. But now back to Utay. Between those big longish going hills quite below ot them there is a tiny picturescue river Kursanka with eveglades by it's shores.
There in Utay are people whose ancestors originally came from different cultures and religions and of course there are people who originate from Jewish religion. But I know no one
who had practised their religion.
I'm very grateful for yor willingness to help me in my English studies. And if it wouldn't cause to much work and take you to much time, please point out my mistakes to me. And also we
could exchange our thoughts about life for example
if you would like that.
Unfortunately I don't know any sources of informations about Utay. But I'm searching now for people who could help me with it. As soon as
I've found out anything I'll let you know of course.
: Our family name is Utay and our ancestors came from Russia. We are very curious if there is a connection between Utay, Russia (which we think is approximately 400 km northwest of Irkutsk) and our ancestors. Can anyone tell us what you know about this town? how we might get more information about it? and how we might be able to travel there? If there is a connection between our ancestors and this town, or if there are Utays living there or in the area now, we would be very interested in arranging a visit there. We would be coming from the United States and would need a translator and guide. Thank you very much for any information you might be able to provide.
