Prior to WW1, these towns were part of the Judicial district of
Bursztyn which was within the administrative district of Rohatyn.
According to the Austrian census of 1900, Martynow Nowy had 68 Jews,
Martynow Stary had 48 Jews, and Ruzdwiany had 6 Jews.
On a personal note, my great grandfather had the duty of protecting
the bridge at Martynow during WW1.
Hope this helps.
