My grandfather was born in Deliatitz, Russia in 1899.
I cannot find it on a map.
Can anyone help?
His name was Alexander Freed.

I think you may be talking about a town that is no longer in Russia, but rather was in the Russian empire at the time your ancestor's record was created. In Belarus there is a town Delyatichi (Alternate names: Delyatichi [Rus], Delatycze [Pol], Delatitch [Yid], Dzialacičy [Bel], Delyatyche, Dzjaljacicy.) - I would say with almost 100% certainty that this is the town you're looking for! This was a shtetl in the Minsk Province of Belarus.

This shtetl is often lumped in with nearby Lyubcha, Belarus
