List from an 1875 list of Jewish families at the Lithuanian National Archives

Locating these villages on modern maps is quite challenging, and we haven't managed them all. However,  the Yahoo group LidaRoots
has detailed maps of Poland from before 1939 in its files. IMap 32-40NE and map 32-40SE had to be joined. Some of the villages on this list are underlined in red,
 and only part of the central section of the map is included.  For orientation on modern maps, the village of Bastuny, at the lower right of this map, is on modern maps.
