I would appreciate help in finding information about 19th century Malducioniai volostj in the Panevezys district, Kovno, Lithuania.
My interests are-
-the size of 19th century Malducioniai volostj
-names of villages, estates, manors, etc.
-sources for discovering the complexion of Jewish 19th century life in the volostj.
-contacts who may have information
My great grandfather, Orel, and his brothers Girsh and Itsyk DAVIDOV lived in Malducioniai volostj. They moved to Pumpenai at some point in the second half of the 19th century. Their descendants were told that the brothers were from "a small shtetl close to Pushelat". Most likely, this is the shtetl in Malducioniai that they lived in before moving to Pumpenai.
Many thanks for any assistance,
