Town in Galicia #galicia


A certificate of marriage in New York (extract below) lists the groom and bride's place of birth as "Ocst. Gal." Gal, is likely an abbreviation for Galicia, which is consistent with other documents that say they were born in Austria. Does anyone have an idea what town Ocst., which also appears to be an abbreviation, might be? The JewishGen Communities Database and Gazetteer do not suggest any places in Galicia.
