Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Re: Location of Saleije? #lithuania

Rusty Wilson is trying to determine the town of origin of the Wilkorisky
branch of his family. The passenger list manifest lists the town as
"Saleije." Perhaps some pronounciation and handwriting "experiments" could
lead to

Seirijai (Present Lithuanian name)
Serey / Sereje/ Seyriyay / Seiriju in South-East Lithuania,
about 16 miles SW of the district centre Alytus,
51 miles South of Kaunas and
68 miles WSW of Vilnius.
Latitude 54 deg 14', Longitude 23 deg 49'

Rusty mentioned his Wilkorisky branch. Some 30 miles NW of Seirijai is
Wilkowyszki/ Vilkavishkis / Vilkaviskis/ Volkaviskio / Vilkaviskio, coord.
5439 2302 , 91.2 miles W of Vilnius and about 30 miles WSW of Kovno. Perhaps
they got the name after they left Wilkowyszki and established in Seirijai ?
