Lianne,

Try searching at JewishGen's Communities Database, and also the Gazetteer.

https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp

https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp

You can manipulate the search in many ways, i.e. starts with, phonetic, and contains.  

Since the spelling of the town is so uncertain, you can even try searching for any town that contains certain letters, i.e. itz.

Good luck in your search,
