Re: Rabbinic ordination in Lithuania #rabbinic

I have similar questions to Jonathan Boiskin about rabbinic ordination
in Lithuania. My great-great grandfather Avraham Veshasky was a rabbi/
dayan in Sereje 1810ish-1861. His son Isaac Veshasky was the head of a
school for children in Sereje started in 1886.
I have not been able to find any information about their yeshiva
education and ordination.

According to my family legend, Rabbi Yehudah Leib HaKohen Katz (1845-1917)
was Rabbi of the shtetl of Dugalisik near Ignalina in Lithuania before 1917.
His son also became a Rabbi - Shimon Wolf Katz (1869-1943). Both immigrated
to Leeds, United Kingdom at some point, I don't know the date.

How do I go about finding out where both of these Rabbis were ordained in
Lithuania?
