I'm looking for any information on a town called "Wittves, Russia" where my g-grandfather Morris Lemberg, came from. I can't locate this place anywhere, although it's recently been suggested that it might actually be a mispronunciation or mispelled Vitebsk, now in Belarus.
Morris Lemberg was b. 06/14/1884 or sometime in 1886 & supposedly immigrated in 1893 at the age of 9 or 7 per 1930 census. However, going through CastleGarden.org I've only found 1 person around the right age & roughly correct time period, a 7 year old Moses Lemberg who arrived in 1891, which is only 2 years too early.
Unfortunately Castlegarden.org is much less detailed that ellisisland.org, so I'm having trouble confirming anything at all.
I was justing wondering if anyone had ANY information of a town called Wittves or Vitebsk. All I have is wikipedia's entry, a few pages that someone recommended. If you know any any Lemberg's from that area, then even better :D
Thanks for taking the time to read through this.
Again, any & all help would greatly appreciated.
