Someone once mentioned to me that vital records for Jewish villages
were also kept in a nearby town called Bobrka, which I believe is now
called Chodorow.>>

Let me assure you that Bobrka is still Bobrka, 18 km >from Lviv. I have
seen one current map where it is spelled Bibrka, but Chodorow it is
not.

In fact Chodorov is approximately another 20 km further south on the
same road.

More importantly, I am in possession of an official document issued by
Bobrka city hall in 1920. It is a certificate issued in lieu of a
birth certificate wherein it states clearly that the records were all
burned together with the city hall building during WWI. So if you are
looking for records older than WWI, unfortunately you won't find them
there.
