Kovno Gubernia was the province of the Russian Empire centered around Kovno (now
Kaunas) and comprised many towns and shtetls with Jewish communities large and
small. I would start by looking at the maps and information available at:
https://www.litvaksig.org/ .

My own family (Kaplan and Fayn) came >from Kedainiai, Ariogala, Josvainiai,
Grinkiskis and Krakes - all in this area.

I'm trying to find a grave in Lithuania and wanted to know where Kovno gubernia
would be located so that I could find a cemetery in the appropriate area. I have
no information other than Kovno Gubernia and do not know the Shetel the family
lived in.
