I have been stuck for quite a few years trying to uncover the ancestry of my
gg-gf Hersh HAUSMAN, who according to my family's oral history came from
Stryy, in Galicia. I have been unable to find any records for him in either
the All Galicia Database or JRI-Poland. I would estimate his birth to be
around the year 1840.
