It sounds as if you have a real problem there. Have you signed up for a message board on rootsweb for that area of Belarus? You might be able to see some names in that area if you searched the messages posted by the members in that area.
I looked at the surnames listed on rootsweb message boards and found names like Terlitsky, Terik, Terrizzi, and etc. There are 2589 messages related to Terry. Maybe someone else is having the same issue.
I guess I would also go back to the Ellis Island lists. The German "t" and "d" often got mixed up when spoken. Like Weintraub is often Weintraudt, Weintraut, and others. I am not sure of the language of Belarus and how it translates when spoken in English. But I would look at the sounds of the letters and see if there might have been some confusion of that nature. The most probable answer is there, all other research is a shot in the dark and looking for possible clues.
I do not know if that helps.
