This is an interesting subject for me.
My wife was born in STANISLAVOV, Poland. Her great grandparents, Simcha
Helft married Sara Teitler (>from Lysiec which is now in the Ukraine as is
STANISLAVOV now known as IVANO-FRANKIVSK.
According to the data we were able to find, their marriage records of the
mid nineteenth century are listed as "linke' and "rechte". We have
understood these references to indicate that they were religious (linke) and
civil (rechte). At that time the city was STANISLAU, Austria-Hungary.
Has anyone else have these references in their trees?
