Nidyki, Ukmerge uzed: Current location? #lithuania


Laurie Sosna
 

Hello,
 
I located my gg-grandfather Nokhim FRIDZESON and his two sons in the 1874 All Lithuania Revision List-Part 1.
The record says they registered in Sirvintos and reside in Nidyki, Ukmerge uzed.  I was not able to find the current location for Nidyki using the Town Finder on JewishGen or the Shtetl List on LitvakSIG. I've tried all the variables, I'm just not finding it.
 
Any ideas would be most welcome.

Laurie,

Perhaps Nidyki is a typo for Vidiškiai.  It is 18 miles from Sirvintos.

And the winner is...

Lyduokiai! AKA Nidoki, Liduokiai, Liduokyay, Lyduokių, Lyduokliai
It's listed in the JewishGen Gazeteer, not in the Jewish Communities Database.
A tiny village 8 miles from Ukmerge. In 1874 it must have been something out of the Sholom Alechim stories.
It's proximity to Ukmerge, Sirvintos and other towns where my family lived clinched it.

My deepest thanks to everyone who responded.
