Nowy Dwow #russia

I'm doing some research for a friend.  On the passenger manifest her grandmother is listed as coming from Nowy Dwow, Russia.  I tried the Jewishgen Gazeteer.  It couldn't find this town.  Anyone know where it was located?
 
Thanks so much.

Novy Dvor in Belarus, perhaps? (the Polish name is Nowy Dwor)

Hi Jackie:

There is a Nowy Dwor in northeastern Poland near the Belarus border, NE of Bialystok and SW of Grodno. See https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=-519062.

Hi Jackie

Following Mark's posting, I checked out Nowy Dwór on English-language Wikipedia.  I'm sorry to say it lists no less than 44 different localities by that name in Poland alone https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nowy_Dw%C3%B3r

Peter,

You should concentrate on the "Jewish" Nowy Dwór Mazowiecki. For this JewishGen Gazetteer and JewishGen Family Finder are very helpful.


Nowy Dwór Mazowiecki, Novy Dvor, Nowy Dwór populated place 52°26' N 20°43' E G Poland 17.4 miles NW of Warszawa 52°15' N 21°00' E

Thanks to all who responded to my question about Nowy Dwow.  I now know that there are several towns with that name.  My friend has no idea which one her family came from.

to make the search even more complicated I add two Nowy Dvors in Belarus, about 110 km apart, SW and NW to Grodno. 
Many New Yards they have built, those poles!
