Lwow Address Directory for 1916 now searchable #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks

A Lwow address directory for 1916 is now full-text searchable at
http://genealogyindexer.org, "Ksiega adresowa krol. stol. miasta
Lwowa." Searches include this and all other sources by default. You can
restrict a search to just this directory by appending {d917} to your
search term, like this: kalter {d917}.

This directory was very recently digitized by the Library of Congress'
Preservation Reformatting Division, and is now searchable thanks to
their gracious cooperation and the assistance of Regina Frackowiak.
Search results currently link to individual images rather than the
Library's usual "page-turner interface," which will be available in the
future. The entire directory can be downloaded as a PDF from

As far as I know, this is the first "new" major Lwow-specific directory to
become available online in several years. Because of its date, it might
be especially useful to researchers of families displaced by WWI,
although it is unclear to me when its information was collected. Some
people listed in the 1914/1915 Lwow War Refugees Address Directory
as having fled >from Lwow to Vienna do not appear in this directory,
while others do. I have not compared the two sources carefully. The
War Refugees Address Directory, "Ksiega adresowa pamiatkowa i
adresowa wygnancow wojennych z Galicyi i Bukowiny," is also
searchable at genealogyindexer.org.

is one of 22 directories added in the past week alone.
