From: David Zincavage

... I believe my grandfather Boleslaw DEGUTIS

Circa 1985, 143 persons of that name in Lithuania. Thought to refer to the occupation of making tar,
degutas is "tar" in Lithuanian.

... came from Naujasodis, Trakai, Lithuania. His father was August Degutis, and his mother was Bertha Chesonias.

ĆESONIS (69) a patronymic from Czesław.

... Does anybody know anything about Naujasodis?

The name would mean "new garden."
