Re: Location of Saleije? #lithuania

Perhaps it is "Sereje" which is now called "Seirijai". If the passenger
manifest is handwritten, it can often be difficult to decipher the
handwriting. If you are reading the manifest off the Ellis Island site,
the transcribers can have made an error. In my ggm's case, the town name
was transcribed by the EIDB volunteers as "Lereji" but upon visual
examination of the digital scan of the original manifest, was clearly "Sereje".

Sereje is southwest of Vilna at 5414N 2349E, but is not too far away.
It is closer to Alytus.

Good luck.
