Virgeovitz. Google doesn't help. The city comes off ship manifest as the last location of a family from Poland. Any help would be appreciated.

I found my grandfathers declaration of intent papers, and it says he was born in Odryzyn, or Wldsowcy . I put these names into the map and it says there are no such places. Does anyone have an idea if there is a different spelling. Thanks.

Odryzyn is in Belarus :)
Odryzyn is a village in Belarus
Wldsowcy ? maybe also was once upon a time tiny village in Belarus?
