I am researching for several years my wife's family APOTHEKER with a fair success. We knew that her ggrandfather Saul Isak
APOTHEKER was born in 1831 and lived in Nowy Sacz. He had some relatives in Krakow,Drobomyl, Przemysl and in
villages in the vicinity. However, during the second half of the 19th century there was only one APOTHEKER household in all
those places, in other words, their forefathers came from somewhere else. Yesterday I found out that Saul Isak was born in
Stanislawow in East Galicia. In Stanislawow I found the spelling APTEKER which returned many results also in Kolomiyya
and once also the right spelling APOTHEKER. I also have one APOTHEKER who lived in Bobrka(Bibrka) which is 86 km
from Stanislawow. Trying other spelling APTAJKER I found a PoT from Lazajsk. I believe they might be my wife's relatives.
If it rings a bell I would like to hear about it. East Galicia is Terra Nova for us.
