1941-1942 Lwow Jewish Registration Cards Follow-Up #general

Hi fellow researchers,

This is a follow-up to my informational post made July 13th to all researching
Lwow/Lviv/Lemberg and the surrounding area. This is regarding 13 LDS films of
1941-1942 Jewish Registration Cards >from the city of Lwow/Lviv/Lemberg (currently
Lviv Ukraine, formerly Lwow Poland and Lemberg Austrian Galicia) I found through
the Family Search (LDS) Library online catalogue
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp
I have finally examined one film of these cards and will report my findings. The
film contains images of small printed cards, both sides were filmed but most
reverses are blank, others have printing on them that tells me they were re-using
old paper since some have stamped years >from the 1930s or they are other types of
cards cut in half. The obverse of each card is identical; at the top is printed
Judische Gemeinde der Stadt Lemberg Evidenz-Abteilung. A rough online translation
says it means Jewish Community of the city of Lemberg Evidence-Division.
Below that heading are 6 numbered columns; surname, given name, birth date,
address with street and number, occupation, and comments. Most cards were filled
out very briefly, most just with name, year or date of birth and address,
sometimes occupation. All I saw were living at addresses within the city of Lwow,
not other towns or cities. The cards apparently were listing all Jews in the city;
I saw elderly people as well as very young children, some born in 1940 or 1941. No
places of birth are listed. The cards are not dated and are not signed by anyone
but the film header card >from the Lviv Archive says they are >from 1941-1942. The
cards are in rough alphabetical order arranged by first letter of last name, some
are alphabetical after that while others are out of order. Best of luck on your
searches!
