Until 1920 Anyksciai was part of the Vilkomir uezd in the Kovno governorate.  According to Alexander Beider's reference of last names, this last name was in use in the Vilkomir uezd.  You can find people with that last name in JewishGen, if you target your search to Vilkomir uezd.
Lithuanian language records might have Lithuanian gender suffixes for this last name, like Videtskaite (unmarried female), Videtskis (male), Videtskiene (married female).
