Re: TOWN NAME/LOCATION: YAGASTOR #general #russia

I was going to make the same suggestion that it may be Augustowa.  My paternal grandparents were both from there, and the town is referred to as Yagastov in several documents (based on the Yiddish pronunciation of the name).  It was part of Russia until after the First World War.

You may be interested to know that the Yizkor Book of Augustowa has just been published in translation by Jewish Gen.
