Since I began this post, I still have not located info on my gr grandfather Woicieszonak (americanized to WHITE long after his arrival at ellis island where they spelled it close-Woiczechenok) from the town "Kovsiviche" or some similar sounding name(Kostmewtz was ellis island listing of birth location), however I have discovered one of my "Polish" gr grandparent-"Puksta" came from the town "Kiemieliszki" or Kemelishki In Belarus, near the present Lithuanian border, my ethnic Pole gr grandmother I was searching for her town "Za'polye" and her travelcompanion from "Tichonowice" originated also in Belarus --"Cichiniwicze" near a Zapole and where we found ancestors listed in "Kraisk" church records....so while things move slowly, with perseverance I have progressed with the help of people on this board. Thank you
