Lithuanian place name: Werschbolova

+4 votes

I have a family tree delivered, and records from a danish citizenship showing that the man I am researching was born in Lithuania in 1894 in a place shown as "Werschbolova" - However, I am unable to find any reference of this name on the web. Is there someone with polish or lithuanian knowledge, who might be able to discern where this might be?

The proper place name you are looking for is Virbalis (Lithuanian name) - or Wierzbołów (Polish name). This is Marijampole County, close to the Polish border.

Thank you very much! You're a godsend :-)

This also fits with data I found from JewishGen - birth data of a person of the same name - Marijampole was mentioned as the place of birth.

Do you have an image of the actual record?

I do not have the actual record, but only the information from the database of the danish ministry of the interior (

I will be trying to get hold of the actual record in the future.

It looks like Zbigniew Walc pinpointed the location for you which is most likely Wierzbołów
