Next time, instead of "Googling" use the Jewishgen ShtetlSeeker <grin>:

The following shtetl is a possible match to " Podhorndiszere".
There are other shtetlach that would be better matches for Podhordisz but since
this was your "guess" and the shtetl you are looking for is Podhorndiszere I
would say this is the best one:

Podhorodyszcze : 49°42' 24°19'
Current name: Podgorodishche
Alternate name: Podgorodyshche
Administrative District: Bobrka
Province: Lwow
57.6 miles W of Tarnopol
6.9 miles ESE of Lwow

To confirm it I went to the JRI-Poland Database:
and searched for the combination:
HOCHBERG / Podhorodyszcze and nothing came up....
but, with the combination:
HOCHBERG / Bobrka I found 9 records for this surname/shtetl combination.
Considering that Podhorodyszcze is only 4.7 miles N of Bobrka I would say,
if I was still in Las Vegas, that it was worth betting on it :-).

I have found my husband's grandfather's immigration manifest in 1898, Ellis
Island where he says he is >from Podhorndiszere, the closest I can get is
Podhordisz in Tarnapol? Lvov?

I tried googling the town and came upon yiskor and memorium data, however I
am at a loss as to the exact name of the town and if I can get other
information on this town. The surname Hochberg is on the list of surnames,
I just don't know how to continue with this.

If anyone can lead me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.
