Directories question #galicia


Sylvia Furshman Nusinov
 

After reading Pamela's messages re researching the Directories - I checked
again for my Grandmother's father's lumber mill. Growing up, I had heard
many anecdotes about her visits to the lumber yard.

The surnames I checked were AWNER [my Grandmother's maiden surname] and
WECHSLER [her Grandfather's surname].
I checked both DM and exact spelling.
The documents which I have in my possession list Lemberg/L'vov as my
Grandparent's home.
The Town listings in the 1891 Galician Business Directory for WECHSLER
[Sawmill] are Smorye and Skole.
I didn't find a reference to either town in Shtetl Finder - I then GOOGLED
and
found information on Skole [a district town in L'vov] but not Smorye.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I go >from here????

Is researching magnate landowners the next step?

Thank you.
Sylvia
