The purpose of this page is to differentiate among the 4 Buivenai and similarly-spelled places in Lithuania. (also adding a few towns beyond the 4 most similarly spelled towns)


  • Buivėnai (populated place)
    • 56°01' N 25°11' E
    • 92.2 miles N of Vilnius
  • Buivėnai, Buyvenis (populated place)
    • 55°49' N 24°53' E
    • 80.4 miles NNW of Vilnius
  • Bubėnai, Bubyany (populated place)
    • 55°47' N 21°54' E
    • 154.3 miles WNW of Vilnius
  • Buivūnai (populated place)
    • 54°51' N 24°38' E
    • 29.7 miles WNW of Vilnius

Variations a bit further from Buvenai spelling

  • Bobėnai, (Bobenay, Babenai)
    • From Lithuanian Wikipedia: Bobėnai is a village in the territory of Biržai district municipality, in Nemunėlis Radviliškis municipality, 13 km north of Biržai, on the road 190 Biržai-Germaniškis. [1](translated using Deepl online translator)
    • This town seems promising, simply because it is closer to a larger town than most of the others. Weatherall-96 05:35, 27 September 2021 (UTC)

Non-populated places

  • Buveinių Ežeras, Ežeraitis (lake)
    • 55°11' N 22°27' E
    • 118.9 miles WNW of Vilnius

Research Notes

  • I started this page during the Wikitree Challenge Week for Melanie (Doherty) McComb. There is indication in DNA research that she may be related to a Gailunas from "Bieveinei" or similar. Melanie’s Gailunas ancestors are Anton and his father Ignaty.
