All references mentioned by Gary are in the indices of the
Jewish vital records of Wyszkow (55 km NE of Warsaw) in the
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland database. This the town is
halfway between Warsaw and Ostrow Mazowiecka.

In the very near future, through the efforts of Database Manager,
Michael Tobias, the Latitude and Longitude will appear beside
the name of every town in the JRI-Poland search results.

Gary refers to a "JewishGen database." It's easy to get confused,
but please remember that the information (indices) to which he
refers is in the *Jewish Records Indexing - Poland* database.
JRI-Poland is hosted by JewishGen but is an independent non-profit
organization.
