Re: Plipsche? #galicia
As Alexander Sharon wrote, Pilipche was once called Filipkowce. It is
listed in Gesher Galicia's Galicia Town Locator
(http://www.geshergalicia.org/galician-town-locator/) by that
Austrian-era name. As you can see in the Galicia Town Locator,
Filipkowce was in the Mielnica Jewish administrative district. Another
important source on the Gesher Galicia website -- the All Galicia
Database (http://search.geshergalicia.org) -- has 31 "hits" for
Filipkowce. Also be sure to look on JRI-Poland.org, where many
records refer to Filipkowce -- especially Mielnica records.
