On October 18, Geoff Kaiser inquired about the Ostrowo (Ostrow
Wielkopolski) records at YIVO in Manhattan.
I examined some of these records when visiting New York last year.
Geoff is right: they are a good source of information on Ostrowo, a
town for which few records are available elsewhere.
There are 10 linear feet of documents--sadly, crammed tightly into
large boxes--just waiting for an eager person (or team) with the time
and inclination to index them.
For anyone who is interested, I have a 26-page Word document from
YIVO, describing the collection in detail.
