Looking for Lukowitzi Belarus? #belarus


Arthur Sissman
 

Thanks for all the replys. Perhaps Lukovets, Ukraine  makes the most sense for my research.  I appreciate you work on my behalf. 

Some "sthetl" suburb of Gomel, or even N Ukraine within 100 km of Gomel would be even better!  But this is genealogy we are discussing and people traveled a lot farther than we think/thought (at least for me).

Please let me know when I can return the favor!

Arthur,

There are several locations with spellings that are similar to the one you supply. Here is a results page with most of them: 
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/gazetteer/gazetteer.php?Town=Lyakhavichy&Country=AU|BO|HR|EZ|EN|HU|LG|LH|MD|PL|RO|RS|LO|SI|UP&Miles=MILES&cl=capital&stype=D&accnt=Y&HttpVerb=Post

If you are sure that your community was not in, or near the Austrian Empire, as some of these are, is there any other evidence that points to Gomel or other communities nearby. There is a place in the Poltava gubernia that is spelled like this.

Hi,
I am looking for Lukowitzi Russia (closest spelling I could find and town associated is today, Lyakhavichy, Belarus - Jewishgen - https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=-1945696 - in the Minsk gubernia and seems far from Gomel - 390 km).
BUT I suspect the actual is closer to Gomel, Belarus in the Mogilev gubernia? Or NOT

Anyone have an idea?

Looking for Teleshevsky (and associated spellings and variations!)
