Dolyna prewar autograph book - new project? #general

Marla Raucher Osborn <marla.r.osborn@...>

Do you have family roots in Galician Dolyna in the Ivano-Frankivsk
Oblast of western Ukraine?

A prewar young woman's autograph book has come into my possession from
Ksenya Kiebuzinski of the University of Toronto. The book contains the
names of girls who attended the 7-grade St. Stanislaus Kostka girls'
school in Dolyna, and the dedications are directed to a young girl by
the name of Beila (variations: Beile, Bela, Balusja). Many if not most
of the girls' surnames are Jewish, and include Regina Neumanowna,
Chana Nussenbaumowna, Getruda Guttmann, Elzbieta Lowenborger, R.
Bergerowna, Maja Stachowiczowna, Chana Lustig, Scheindel Hoffmanowna,
G. Fleckmann, Michalina Szafranska, Jadwiga Haszecka, Ch. Spiegelowna,
Blina Reinhaczowna, Maja Wejmanowna, J. Rybak, Estera Gellenowna,
Edita Antonowiczowna, to name a few.

Languages are in Polish, German, and even English, with some
wonderfully artistic drawings. The book has been scanned (thanks to
Ksenya) and is in .pdf format, which I am willing to share to anyone
willing to index the information and collaborate with Gesher Galicia,
JRI Poland, or Jewishgen (for example) for posting online and making
available to others.

The original book is to be donated to Rabbi Moyshe Kolesnik of
Ivano-Frankivsk on our next visit.

Warm regards, and thanks,
