Yudchitz = Judscitz/Jutczitz

Posted By: Hania

In Response To: Looking for grandpas relatives (William L. Yudchitz)

The key to any of these searches is ascertaining EXACT PLACE OF ORIGIN. Immigrants frequently referred to their regional/uyezd center town as place of origin for geographical reference, because their own villages were small.

As per Ellis Island Records, there were several Judczitz/Jutczitz*** (Adam, Luka JUDCZITZ & Iwan JUTCZITZ- that look to be cousins) that immigrated from village Pesehky/Peschni/Peshki>Grodno and were headed for Jefferson St. in Chicago. BREST WAS A UYEZD OF THE GRODNO GUBERNIYA. Another village name that comes up in Ellis Island Records is Weschna>Grodno. My guess would be that village Peshki (or some variant of) would be fairly close to Wechna/Vishnya??? I would think that you should look for these two villages in the same district @turn of century.
