I recently found out that part of my family originated >from Nowogrod,
Lomza, Poland. I have been unable to find out much information about
the town. Does anyone know of Nowogrod and it's Jewish history?

I wish I knew more about Nowogrod, and I look forward to reading the
comments of anyone that does. What I can contribute is only that the visage
of the village is different >from that of other towns in what was Lomza
Gubernia, in that one sees few, if any, structures built before the Shoah.
The place was evidently destroyed utterly by the Wehrmacht or SS. There is,
however, a museum park, called a "Skansen", in which a number of log cabins
have been built and furnished to illustrate the way of life of the
inhabitants (Kurpians, not Jews) of several centuries ago.
