JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Zulice and Bialy Kamien #general

I propose an interesting research question that maybe someone can answer.
I have noticed in the past that for Bialy Kamien and its surrounding towns,
there is a rather large influx of Jews with origins in Zulice, near Lublin
in Poland.

Does anyone know what connections Lublin had with the area surrounding Bialy
Kamien? This is of particular interest to me and my cousins as two families
we are researching the PARNES family and the TENNEN family have members in
Bialy Kamien who come out of Zulice (and they are not isolated either, there
is over 50 records indicating this with many different family units). I know
Lublin has an important place in the rabbinic world of Eastern Europe.

The research question is in two parts: 1) What was the connection between
Lublin and Tarnopol, specifically Bialy Kamien, Zloczow, and Sasow? and
2) What led to such an obviously significant movement >from Zulice near
Lublin to Tarnopol, presumably sometime between 1850 and 1880?

I have sent this question to Gesher Galicia, JewishGen Discussion Group,
and RavSIG.

Please reply privately.
