Re: To many Mikolajow? #galicia

Regarding the Jewish populations in the 3 Eastern Galicia communities by the
name of Mikolajow, Alexander Sharon indicated the Jewish populations for
1921 and 1931. Since there were no actual numbers available for the
Mikolajow in Radziechow district, I have provided statistics >from two others
sources and also provided the numbers >from these 2 sources for the two other
places by the same name in eastern Galicia. The two additional sources are:

1. A statistical study by Volodymyr Kubijovyc published in 1983 provides
estimated population for all ethnic groups based primarily on the 1931
census extrapolated to January 1, 1939. The extrapolation is based on
several others sources explained in his study.
Full reference: ?Kubijovyc, Volodymyr. Ethnic groups of the
South-Western Ukraine (Halycyna - Galicia) 1.1.1939. 1983. Wiesbaden,
Germany. Otto Harrassowitz. Text in Ukrainian (cyrillic) and English
languages. Statistical tables and indexes in Ukrainian (cyrillic), Ukrainian
(transliterated), and Polish languages. 175 pages.

2. The official published statistical report whose title is usually known
in short form as the "Gemeindelexikon der Galizien" was published in 1907
and was "the" compiled result of the 1900 Austrian census.
Full reference: ?K.K. statistischen Zentralkommission.
Gemeindelexikon der im Reichsrate vertretenen Königreiche und Lander:
Bearbeitet auf Grund der Ergebnisse der Volkszahlung vom 31. Dezember 1900.
Bd 12: Galizien. 1907. Wien (Vienna), Austria. German language. 1024 pages.

Adding these two sources to those provided by Alexander Sharon results in:

Mikolajow (Zydaczow dist.)
454 (1900 census, Gemeindelexikon)
498 (1921 census, WOWW)
559 (1931 census, Pinkas Hakehilot)
600 (est. 1939, Kubijovyc)

Mikolajow (Bobrka dist.)
314 (1900 census, Gemeindelexikon)
n/a (1921 census, WOWW)
315 (1931 census, Pinkas Hakehilot)
300 (est. 1939, Kubijovyc)

Mikolajow (Radziechow dist.)
60 (1900 census, Gemeindelexikon)
n/a (1921 census, WOWW)
n/a (1931 census, Pinkas Hakehilot)
50 (est. 1939, Kubijovyc)

I hope that this provides at least some indication of the relative Jewish
population of Mikolajow (Radziechow dist.) and perhaps some interesting or
useful data for other time periods for all three places.
