Re: Vaniovice, Galicia? #galicia #ukraine

Gesher Galicia's Galician Town Locator
( lists a good
possibility -- Waniowice, in the Jewish administrative district of
Sambor. Chances are that it's the place that Google Maps calls
Van'ovychi and the JewishGen Gazetteer lists as Van’ovitse -- about 5
miles southwest of Sambor/Sambir, Ukraine.

Both the All Galicia Database ( and
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland ( have records for this
