Re: 19th C Vital Records From Galicia Located In Poland #poland #records #ukraine #galicia

Hi Scott:

All the towns you listed have records that have been indexed by JRI-Poland and some of those towns have records that have been indexed by Gesher Galicia. Both organizations are independent organizations not affiliated with JewishGen. 

If you are only interested in vital records, JRI-Poland and Gesher Galicia have you covered. Search JRI-Poland at and Gesher Galicia at

If you are interested in other types of records, Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots Foundation has an Archival database reached by clicking on "Archive Documents." Also search the fairly new surnames database by clicking on "Search by surname." 

Please write to me privately for more information about the records of those towns.

I am primarily looking for 19th C (or earlier) records on my family. I’ve listed the shtetls and surnames below. I understand that some records may be held in the Polish archives and not available on-line, e.g., JewishGen.
Can anyone tell me if it would be worth digging in deeper to see what there may be in Poland? Any recommendations on a researcher I could use to help me assess what there may be?
Gryzmolow, Kopychintski, Pidvolychsk, Zadniskowa – Dressler
Berezhany, Bolszowce, Rohatyn, Stratyn – Emmer, Spring

Many thx.
