Re: When were Jews in Galicia (Poland and now Ukraine) allowed to have passports? #galicia

Richard, I have a 4 page PDF copy of my great grandfather’s Passport from Galicia in 1929. He lived in Suchostow and the passport seems to have been granted in “Brzezany.” I suppose this doesn’t tell you when the first passport for anyone was issued, but I can say that Pinkas Weisser used this passport for leaving Europe on the ship “France” and entering NY immigration. He then settled in Brooklyn, N.Y. until his death, living with his eldest daughter.
