Galician records: what is "Galicia Schematism" #galicia

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear fellow researchers,

I have found through the genealogyindexer.org items under the title
"Galicia Schematism". Below you can see a "copy&pasted" example:

1876 Galicia Schematism, image 193 {d817}
Source: Malopolska Genealogical Society
Kalich Szyja, Ustrzyki doi. Moryles Naftali. Lutowiska. liabi Mendel,
Balogrod. Lwow. Rabin. Orenstein Hirsch, Lwow. Kaznodzieja.
Lowenstein Bernard, Lwow. Podrabin. Blumenfeld Wolf, Lwow. Szkoluik.
Gerster Samuel. Jaryczowj nowy. Schmelner Aron, Nawarja....

Can anyone tell me what are these lists all about? At least for a few I
am quite certain it is a list of communities rabbis, but even if so, further
details would be appreciated.

Thank you very much,

Yaron Pedhazur

Jewish woman descended from a Polish queen? #poland

RuthNW <ruthnw@...>
 

I just came across the record of a married woman whose given name
was originally Jadwiga. Was amazed to discover that Jadwiga was a
14th century Polish monarch!

Her name was Ita/Jadwiga FRUMER (with an umlaut over the "U").
(I'm assuming that FRUMER is a variant of FRYMER, her husband's
surname, even though it sounds Germanic.) Ita's parents were
Moszek Zysel (unmistakably Jewish!) and Estera DOBROCZYCKICH/POZANSKA.
Estera is always (or at least usually) considered Jewish - but what
about those two last names - would they be considered "Jewish?"

I'm wondering whether Ita's mother was of mixed parentage. Otherwise
why would a (supposedly Jewish woman be named after a Polish (Christian)
queen?

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
