Grodno Guberniya was once considered part of Lithuania (today, the
main part of the region is in Belarus). I think that "Grodner Yarnova"
is Grodno (region) Janow(a).
Checking Cities and Towns in Grodno Guberniya;
It might be one of the two;
Janow-Sokolski Sokolka district, Grodno Gubernia 53° 28' 23° 14'
Ivanovo (Janow) Kobrin district, Grodno Gubernia 52° 09' 25° 32'
If you check reports to Yad Vashem you would find places that sound
like Yanowa in a few areas. Some are near the city of Grodno.
