Re: Which shtetl is Wytkor / Witkor / Vitkor Galicia / Austria? # #austria-czech #galicia

Hi Tracy:

I think the town may be Wiktorow, now Vyktorov in Ukraine near Halicz. Jewish vital events for Wiktorow were recorded in Halicz. Unfortunterly, the Jewish vital records from before 1923 have not survived. JRI-Poland has indexed marriage and death from 1923 to 1931, which are not yet online. There are a few ADLER entries, but none living in Wiktorow. 

The other option is Wiktorowka, near Kozowa, where Jewish records were recorded. Search JRI-Poland for ADLER from Wyktorowka and there are no matching entry leading me to believe that this is not your ADLER's town. 

Best regards,
Mark Halpern

Hello friends - I have a branch of the family, the Adlers, whose ship manifests say that they hailed from Wytkor / Witkor / Vitkor in Galicia / Austria.  I searched on Jewish Gen to try to find where that shtetl might've been, but am coming up empty.  Has anyone seen this town name before?

Thank you!
