Re: When were Jews in Galicia (Poland and now Ukraine) allowed to have passports? #galicia
What I found interesting about passports from Galicia was the difference, for example, of a Polish passport and an Austrian one. I have my grandmother's Polish passport from late 1920 which she used to come to America. I don't have my grandfather's. I know he served in WW I which I understand is part of the reason she married so late. Because of no civil marriage, she is called by her maiden surname. It also mentions her aunt for some reason. This is an aunt I know little about, save what I found on JRI-Poland for her children by a man who is only mentioned on one birth certificate. Can someone tell me what it mentions about Feige Terner? What's also interesting is that both of her parents were alive at this point. Please let me know if there is any difficulty reading it.
