Olwita/Alvitis was cited as the location in the microfilmed index of the birth record of Wilhelm Gustave Spurgat in 1875. Purwiniszki was one the localities in the rural township of Olwita. See previous post about the importance of Purwiniszki.
Olwita/Alvitis is on the highway between Wylkowiszki/Vilkaviskis and Wirballen/Virbalis. Because there was no need to identify a particular location in Olwita/Alvitis related to our family, we drove to Wylkowiszki /Vilkaviskis.
