Galicia Records from Lviv Archive at LDS #galicia


Mark Jacobson
 

The LDS has just filmed and made available all Galician Jewish
vital records currently in the Lviv Archive. These are primarily
pre-1877 records which are not part of the Warsaw Archive
collection indexed by JRI-Poland. These are films of the actual
record books which have not been indexed and they have not been
easily available until now. Most should be written in German or
Polish; little information in early records, more information in
later records. You can see details at their website
http://www.familysearch.org . Place search for Lviv, topic Jewish
Records. This includes records for towns Brody, Horodenka,
Drohobycz, Stryj, Sambor, Tarnopol, Lemberg and other Galician
cities going back to about 1800 for some towns. I will be ordering
the Drohobycz records to determine exactly what was filmed for that
town. It should include birth records >from 1816 to 1869 and death
records 1816 to the 1830's. Hopefully indexing projects will be
formed for this valuable collection.
