I am attempting to trace the place of birth of my great grandfather Alfred Lewis.
Place of Birth: Wesse, Poland (Russia)
Alfred Lewis migrated to Australia (via Manchester, England) in 1888. His
profession was master tailor.
I cannot find any references to Wesse, which I believe has been anglicized.
Google searches seemed to indicate Wesse may also be pronounced Jesse?
Using JewishGen, I have come up with Jejse [Polish], Belarus (also known as
Yeysi, Jaisa, Jaisi, Jajsi, Ya'isi).
Place you are searching for is most probably modern Vidzy in Belarus at 5524
