1941-1942 Lwow Jewish Registration Cards Follow-Up #galicia

Hi fellow researchers,

This is a follow-up to my informational post made July 13th to
all researching Lwow/Lviv/Lemberg and the surrounding area. This
is regarding 13 LDS films of 1941-1942 Jewish Registration Cards
from the city of Lwow/Lviv/Lemberg (currently Lviv Ukraine,
formerly Lwow Poland and Lemberg Austrian Galicia) I found
through the Family Search (LDS) Library online catalogue
<http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp>

I have finally examined one film of these cards and will report
my findings. The film contains images of small printed cards,
both sides were filmed but most reverses are blank, others have
printing on them that tells me they were re-using old paper since
some have stamped years >from the 1930s or they are other types of
cards cut in half. The obverse of each card is identical; at the
top is printed Judische Gemeinde der Stadt Lemberg
Evidenz-Abteilung. A rough online translation says it means
Jewish Community of the city of Lemberg Evidence-Division.

Below that heading are 6 numbered columns; surname, given name,
birth date, address with street and number, occupation, and
comments. Most cards were filled out very briefly, most just with
name, year or date of birth and address, sometimes occupation.
All I saw were living at addresses within the city of Lwow, not
other towns or cities.

The cards apparently were listing all Jews in the city; I saw
elderly people as well as very young children, some born in 1940
or 1941. No places of birth are listed. The cards are not dated
and are not signed by anyone but the film header card >from the
Lviv Archive says they are >from 1941-1942. The cards are in rough
alphabetical order arranged by first letter of last name, some
are alphabetical after that while others are out of order.

Best of luck on your searches!
