I would like to thank all who have written to me privately as well as within
the digests regarding my inquiry about the possibility of records for Brody
possibly being recorded in the LDS films for Lviv or Tarnopol.
I have already reviewed all the LDS films for Brody, as well as the All Galicia
Database, and records available on JRI-Poland. While there are many records
for "Helfer", which is the surname of the family members I am seeking - I
have not yet been able to find any of the records I am seeking.
Without finding records for my grandmother's sibilings it may be impossible to
connect other Helfer records to my own family. I still plan to review the
LDS films for Lviv to verify if any of my Helfer family members might have
been married there, registered the birth of their children there, or died in
that location. If I have any success I will be glad to report it on the
Thank you all for the insight you have provided, and I will continue to
review the records on the All Galicia Database that are constantly being
added to, as well as the records on JRI-Poland.
