Dear Jewish Genners,

I am posting this message for a friend in Melboure, Australia. Her father
(surname Meyerovitz) told her that his parents were born in the town of
"Sakot". He doesn't know how it was spelt, and in fact doesn't know if it
was in Poland or Lithuania (or elsewhere?). He just knows his parents
verbally said they came >from Sakot (literally spoken "Sukot", with the "u"
pronounced as in the "u" of "umbrella".

My friend thinks Lithuania, as her grandparents travelled and settled in
South Africa, and then her father eventually came to Australia.

Has anyone any clues regarding the town and where it may be? I have
searched the ShtetlSeeker, and the closest I get is Saukoto in Lithuania.

Thanks,
Danny Fantl
Melbourne, Australia
