Re: Lacova in Lithuania #lithuania

Hi Jeremy

There are several places called Lubove or Lubowe in 1) the parts of Suwalki gubernia in NE Poland that went into Lithuania in 1919 - in I think the Kalvaria or Marijampole areas that are adjacent to Kovno and 2) near Augustow on the Augustow canal, which is in the present day Suwalki gubernia area but close to Kovno.  I think the name has something to do with oak trees. 

I visited the Augustow Lebowe in 2000, hoping to find out which Lebowe my great aunt's husband came from, this or the other one.  I still do not know as it is a common place name in the area.
