      Hi Jan,
      I have a feeling that you might have difficulty in identifying/establishing location of Wietka-Vietka as one has to have a number added to this name. Vietka in Russian means branch- refers to several posiolkow along a railway line Vologda to Vielsk to Archangielsk.Generally they were near a village.That means it hat be name of dierewnia vietka and a number for the post to get there.
      I had a look at your Vietka and it is Велская Ветка whereyou find a record of your family name. Simply key into Google-in cyrilic- Bелская Ветка -and on second page of this site you will see a list/record of thousands of family names in Archangielskaja oblast between 1939 to 1945.
      The pages are under Фамилии от А до Я.(Families A to Z.)
       
      Your name is under Пр ===Пригода===meaning Prigoda.
       
      I am sure that all the group might benefit by looking at this page/site as thousands of Polish families are there-including my own. Please forgive me if the Russian speakers read this posting, I am not trying to preach.
      Just to add that a great deal is written on that site as it covers so many posioleks in that area. It is worth exploring.
      Good luck,
