Re: Help with Lithuania shtetl name #lithuania

Vidugora is probably Vidugiriai. The JewishGen Gazetteer includes two communities in Lithuania with the name Vidugariai, both of which are near Panevezys (known under Russian rule as Ponevezh)::

Vidugiriai, Vidugirtsy, Vidugirtsay populated place 55°38' N 24°55' E G Lithuania 23.1 miles ESE of Panevė�ys (Ponevezh) 55°44' N 24°21' E
Vidugiriai, Vidugirtsy populated place 55°45' N 24°58' E G Lithuania 24.0 miles E of Panevė�ys (Ponevezh) 55°44' N 24°21' E

I can't tell which of these would be your grandfather's birthplace but now at least you have a starting place. 

Good luck - Judith Singer
