Dear Jacqueline,

You are most probbaly searching for town which is known currently as
Naujalaukis, Lithuania at 5536 2435.
It previous name was Novopol' (Nowopol') and Nowopole (literally: Newfield),
hence this corrupted version of "Nuwobule".
Village is located about 2 miles distance SSE >from the large Jewish town
Raguva (ex Rogo'w or Rogova, Rogove), Vilkomir uyezd, Kovno Guberniya, and
about 25 miles distance >from Vilkomir, who BTW has been renamed to Ukmerge.

Best Regards,
