Galician documents recently acquired #galicia


Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

This is a brief summary of some of the Galician documents that I
recently examined and, unless otherwise noted, photographed at the
Wawel branch of the National Archives in Krakow (Teki Antoniego
Schneidra collection) and at AGAD in Warsaw (Potocki Lancut Archive).
The documents have not yet been indexed and I am not able to
respond to lookup requests. I will try to distribute the images with
Jewish genealogical content to people who can organize indexing,
provided we receive the necessary permission, and a full
announcement should follow when indexing is complete. Thanks very
much to the archivists for their generous assistance.

Misc: 1765 statistical information about the Jewish populations of the
following towns in Belz and Lubaczow districts and villages near them:
Augustow/Mosty, Cieszanow, Jarczow, Jozefow, Lipsko, Lubaczow,
Lubycza, Magurow, Mosty/Augustow, Niemirow, Oleszczyce, Potok,
Rawa Ruska, Wielkie Oczy, Tomaszow, and Uchrow. The only names
listed are a few people per town involved in carrying out the census,
some Jewish, some with titles such as rabbi or judge. (Teki Schneidra
syg. 1259); 1766 statistical information (largely in narrative form)
about the Jewish populations of towns in woj. Ruskie and Braclaw,
with some Jewish names (possibly people involved in carrying out the
census), have not examined carefully (Teki Schneidra syg. 1259)

For the above towns, I did not see any other documents with Jewish
genealogical content in the files whose archival signatures are
listed.

I also examined the Kornalowice sections of Teki Schneidra syg. 777
and 778 but did not see any documents with Jewish genealogical
content (and did not photograph any documents).

In the near future, I will write in more detail about my experience with
the Teki Antoniego Schneidra collection in Wawel, which covers
numerous other Galician towns. Exploring it effectively requires the
use of multiple inventories (including one that is partly incorrect).
This collection would be a good candidate for a large-scale project
covering many towns, and I will address what I think are some
important considerations before organizing such a project or privately
hiring a researcher to work with this collection.
