Galician research in Warsaw USC #galicia

Renee Steinig

My husband's paternal grandfather, Isidore (Israel Isser) STEINIG,
son of Asher Selig STEINIG and Chaya Zippe WACHSTEIN, was born
c. 1888 in Tluste (4851 2544; now Tovste, Ukraine). U.S. records
(naturalizations, passenger manifests, etc.) indicate that
members of his immediate STEINIG family lived in Tluste until at
least 1908. WACHSTEIN cousins lived in Tluste until the Shoah.

According to the Routes to Roots Foundation's (i.e. Miriam
Weiner's) online database at
<>, the following
Jewish records for Tluste survive at the USC (Urzad Stanu
Cywilnego) in Warsaw:

birth 1868-1920, 1922-1939
marriage 1890-1939
death 1924-1934

I am considering hiring a researcher to explore them for the
(maiden name of both Selig's and Chaya Zippe's mothers). Has
anyone done or had someone do a similar search at the Warsaw USC
-- i.e. a search for several specified surnames in a similarly
sized town? (About 2,200 Jews lived in Tluste in 1880 and about
1,200 in 1921.) I'd appreciate any advice you can give me about
the process -- approximate cost, strategies for collaborating
with other genealogists, etc.

Please respond privately. I'll send out a summary of the m
essages I receive.

Thank you. Hag sameyach!
