Kurenets is not shown on this map, but it is located between Narach in the north and Vilyeyka in the south. Narach was once called Kobylnik, which is where the Lewitan family is from. The Lewitans were related to the Yankel Alperovich family and when Martin Alpert came to the US in 1903, he lived with the Lewitans (who changed their name to Levine) in Shenandoah, PA. Most of them later moved to Norfolk, VA.
The whole story comes from one mans journey to Lithuania - his pictures and story can be found at :
