Basia and Cynthia,
Yes, there are two names of Vileyka; Nowa Wilejka
is a part of Wilno and is in Lithuania; what was long time ago Stara
Wilejka, which now is in Belarus, is generally referred to as Vileyka
(hence the area is Vilejszczyzna) and Makarycze where Michal Pukiello was born
is a small place just North of it.
There is a great deal written about this in a book
which Alex Weldon sent me and where mention is made about Pukiello family. The
book is in Belarussian.
It is in this Wilejka where there was the
infamous prison for many in 1939-41.
