After reading Pamela's messages re researching the Directories - I checkedSylvia,
Before you are moving to the magnates, search for your family origins.
Jewish Record Indexing -Poland Project database has added thousands of names
which are searchable through JewishGen "All Poland" database. There are
listings for Awners (count: 45 in Lwow and Stanislawow provinces) and
Wechslers (count: 212 in Lwow and Stanislawow provinces). I have selected
Lwow and Stanisalwow since your family records are related to Lwow and Skole
was located in Stanislawow.
Skole is listed in ShtetlSeeker, please select Ukraine while searching.
"Smorye" should read Smorze.
I assume that Phyllis Kramer who has single handed 1891 Galicia Directory,
was probably using simultaneously English and Polish keyboards. In Polish
keyboard setting letters 'y' and 'z' are reversed when compared to English
Shtetl Smorze was located within Skole district. Wechslers records are
listed in Skole (All Poland database for Stanislawow).
