Przedborz Researchers:

Be careful with Przedborz. Im fairly sure more than one of the listed cities
called Przedborz had a Jewish community, and Yizkor books.
My own family came >from the one in the old Kielce-Radom area, south of Lodz,
and north of Krakow. This is the one most people seem to be referring to when
they say "przedborz". To help overcome such difficulties, you should check the
latitude and longitude, if it is mentioned in the index or yizkor book your are
looking at. Also, check out records at JRI-Poland. That can be a gold mine.
It especially seems that the older Przedborz records were well preserved
(1800-1880).
