Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Galician business registration? cards for many towns, 1876-1943 #galicia

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.
