I am trying to determine the present-day name of a village known as
SMOLANKA, which was in the Tarnopol (Ternopil) District and Mikulince
Sub-District of Galicia, located about 10 miles south of Touste and west of
It is listed in "Finding Your Jewish Roots in Galicia," and I have found it
mentioned as a hometown (or village of birth) for parents of children whose
births were recorded in the Mikulince records, in ship's passenger records
(1921), in the online Polish Business Directory for 1929 (517 inhabitants),
in the Krakow (WWII) Registy of Polish Jews, and on an old map of Galicia,
but cannot locate it currently on "Shtetlseeker," in "Where Once We Walked,"
or on mapquest. Perhaps the spelling has changed radically or the community
was destoyed (or absorbed into another), but since Jews did live (and work)
there at one time, I would like to know what became of it, or hear >from
anyone else researching family there.
