I found my husband's paternal great uncle's marriage certificate. On it it
says he was born in Norwidwov, Poland. I can't find any town that even
resembles this in Shtetl Seeker. Any thoughts?
In all likelihood this is Nowy Dwor (or Nowydwor or Nowodwor). There
are many places in Poland with this name. The name means "new court"
in Polish, and, as you can imagine, many new developments near an
existing city/town were given this name.
