Hi again, folks.

Palestyna is listed in JRI-P database 266 times, as birth place or residence.
It shows mainly in historical Galicia regions:
62 times in Lwow Province,
145 times in Stanislawow and 24 times in Tarnopol Provinces.

In addition, there are Palestyna listings in Bielsko-Biala post Holocaust AD 1945 (?) list and in the JDC Vilna refugees lists and JHI (Jewish Historical Institute) passport collection.
During the period of 1925 to 1948 residents of the Palestine Mandate were issued mandatory Palestine passports. Some folks have traveled to Poland, hence the vital documents such as marriage were issued. Hope this resolves Palestine issue.
