Two Towns #galicia


Steve Jaron
 

Hi,

So in May I went to visit Vienna and had the opportunity to visit
the Jewish Archives. While there I found out about two
additional towns that I am curious about.

1. Brezovica (spelling?) - Apparently my maternal grandfather's
paternal grandfather Michael Rothstein was >from that town
however I can't seem to find anything about it on any database.
The only instance I have found is on Wikipedia it lists it as a
town in Kosovo. So out of curiosity is anyone looking for
Rothsteins >from that town as well as Tarnopol. Is there some
connection between the two towns? Does it have a different
name now?

2. Zablotow (spelling?) - This one might be a little easier mostly
I was just wondering if anyone was researching Tillingers >from
this area that would have moved to Stanislawow/Ivano-Frankivsk.
JGFF doesn't have anyone listed for this name/town combination
so I figured I'd ask. Apparently my 2nd great grandfather Aron
Moshe Tillinger was >from this town and not >from Stanislawow
where his children were born. Aron supposedly had either 15
brothers or 15 uncles and the JRI-Poland database doesn't give
me much to go on.

Thanks in advance, and please feel free to respond privately.

Steve

Hi,

it seems to me that best matches for your town-names are:

1. Velika Berezovica (Polish: Berezowica Wielka), a very small town one
mile south of Ternopil (Polish: Tarnopol), almost its suburb

2. Zabolotiv (Polish: Zablotow), JG Locality Page ->

Hi,

Zablotow is currently known as Zabolotiv, Western Ukraine at 4828 2517. This
Jewish community was located within Sniatyn district in Stanislawow
Province.

"Brezovica" - most probably Berezhnitsa (ex Bereznica) located at 4817 2522,
some 15 miles distance >from Zabolotiv.
