I have been recently reviewing the LDS films for Brody, Poland and
noted the large amount of deaths >from Cholera in September 1848 -
pages upon pages of names with the same diagnosis - Cholera! Can
anyone tell me if there was a Cholera epidemic in that area during
that time period?

Yes Joyce... there was a cholera epidemic in the area....
On my kehilalinks page for Rymanow
(www.kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/krosno/krosnorym.hem) you will see
the list of cholera epidemic victims. The lists indicates their towns,
names, ages, occupations, the date when they contracted cholera, and
date of death. The death date was left blank, unless the person
succumbed to cholera.

At one time there were many of these pages on Google, but alas, no
longer. But if you google Cholera and Poland, you'll find lots of
information on the topic.

Happy hunting!
