Kukli

I'm trying to determine what village in Russian Lithuania my g-g-grandfather, Frank Tarejla, immigrated from around 1900. He had simply written Vilna (the Russian gubernia) on all of his American documentation.

I have found a bunch of other Tarejla/Tareila/Tareilo's from "Kukli," which leads me to believe he likely was as well.

Anyone have any information about Kukli? Where it is today, whether or not it was in the Russian province of Vilna, and if I could try and locate records about my grandfather from there.

Thanks,

Jennifer

I checked the four village locations. The ones in Lazdijai. rajonas and Zarasai rajonas were NOT in the former Vilna gubernia.

The other two village were in the Vilna gubernia. One is located 9 kilometers NNW of S^venc^ioneliai, The other is 14 kilometers NE of Varena in the southeast portion of Lithuania.
