Galician business registration? cards for many towns, 1876-1943 #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks

At the ul. Grodzka branch (II) of the National Archives in Krakow, in
a collection of the Krakow Chamber of Commerce, there are cards with
information about (tens of? hundreds of?) thousands of individuals
from many Galician towns, apparently related to business
licensing/registration or some kind of census of professional
activities, with dates 1876-1943 varying by town. I only examined
(and photographed) cards >from Lancut, which are organized
alphabetically and generally contain each person's name, year of
birth, place of birth, address, occupation, references to other
documents, and a list of taxes by year. You can see some of the towns
that are covered in the inventory at, but
note that descriptions sometimes refer to an alphabetical range of
towns in a powiat without specifying each town.
