This information is for the town of Drohobycz/Drogobych in eastern
Galicia, currently Ukraine. This post is for information purposes

Drohobycz researchers Valerie Schatzker, Carole Feinberg and myself
have discovered errors in the records listed by the LDS in their
online inventory of Galician records filmed at the Lviv Archive.
The records the LDS lists as Sambor births (on film 2405338) and
Sambor deaths (on film 2405339) are actually Drohobycz birth and
death records. The Sambor marriages 1859 to 1876 listed by the LDS
to be on film 2405339 are Sambor marriages. They are the only actual
Sambor records on these two films.

Here is a summary of all the Drohobycz records currently known to
exist on LDS films:

LDS Film 2405316 contains Drohobycz births 1816-1833 and 1852-1869,
also Drohobycz deaths 1816-1835 and some marriages 1935.

LDS Film 2405338 includes Drohobycz births, 1833 to 1852.

LDS Film 2405339 includes Drohobycz deaths, 1835-1852.

These are microfilms of actual records, not indexes, and these
records are not indexed and are not available online. These are
earlier records than those Drohobycz records already indexed by

In the United States and many other nations these films can be
rented >from your local LDS Family History Center. Please contact me
if you have any questions.
