Those of you listed in the JGFF for Jadow have already been notified of the
project to translate Sefer Jadow, the Yizkor book of Jadow, Poland.

I wanted to let you know that the Necrology >from the book has been posted to
the website. Thanks go to Lance Ackerfeld for his assistance and general
leadership as Coordinator of the Yizkor Book project.

You may view the Necrology at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/jadow/jadow.html

In addition to the list of martyrs >from Jadow, the lists for nearby
shtetlach are also included for Ostrowek, Baczki, Jasiorowka and Lopianka.

Contributions toward the translation of the book may be made by going to

Jadow is 31 miles ENE of Warsaw, 12 miles SE of Wyszkow, 17 miles WNW of
Wegrow and 20 miles N of Minsk Mazowiecki.

Jadow was not a large town in general, but the 1500 Jews living there in
1921 were 75% of the town's population.

Thanks for your support and interest in this worthy project.
