Preitkis/Preckshot/Prakshot - place name is Jansagen in Russia

Surnames: Preitkis, Prakshot, Preckshot
My gr gr grandfather was George John Preitkis from Lithuania. One other brother spells the name this way, 2 other brothers spell it Prakshot/Preckshot. There must have been a name change but my question is I found a WWI draft card for one of the Preckshot brothers with place of birth as Jansagen (?) Russia (although we know they were all born in Lith-of course Russ and Ger are often listed) I cannot find a place with in the area anything like Jansagen. How could I go about investigating where this place might be? Thank you
