Re: Location of Saleije? #lithuania

I looked this up in ShtetlSeeker, using the Soundex setting, and it
looks as if the town you're looking for could be ZHALEYI (or (ZALIOJI), which is 95.1 miles west of Vilnius. The coordinates for Zhaleyi are 54o43'/by 22o56'.

There is a great deal on the Internet for Zalioji, including its mention
in a Holocaust article at the ShtetLinks site for Panevezys:

If you know how to use the Find feature under Edit in your computer, you
can easily find all the references to Zalioji at the above link.

Subject: [litvaksig] Location of Saleije?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have been completely stymied in determining the town of origin of the
Wilkorisky branch of my family. I'm fairly certain the family came >from
the
Vilna area. The passenger list manifest lists the town as "Saleije."
Does
anyone have any suggestions on what town this could be? Other family
members
list their town of origin as Vilna and "Ivanchain" (which, given the
handwriting, could also be Warsaw, written as Warszawa).

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
