Ruth Vidaver Firestone asks is there still such a town or shtetl as Vidava,
Poland? Are there any records >from this town?
According to the JewishGen Jewish Communities Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp Widawa, Poland, is at 51°26'
N 18°57' E which is 104 mi WSW of Warszawa.
According to the Routes to Roots Database at
http://rtrfoundation.org/search.php, there are numerous records for the Jews
of Widawa dating back to 1826, and likely earlier.
According to FamilySearch at https://www.familysearch.org/, the Mormon
Family History Library has these records >from 1826-1875.
