Redomishel, Galityz #general
Can anyone help me locate the town of Rudomishel in Galitzya ?
My source is one Hebrew document, and one in Yiddish.
They spell the town as: (Hebrew) reish daled vav mem yud shin lamed,
(Yiddish) reish aleph daled aleph mem yud shin lamed ayin
A soundex search on the "Shteitel" gives around 20 names, but I have
no idea which, if any, is correct.

Please return to ShtetlSeeker for visual orientation about Radomysl
Below is URL map of old Galicia - you will see Radomysl name right on the
top of this map.
Please also enter searched name (s), town and country to JGFF database, if
haven't done this yet. Please assure that town spelling, and country
(Poland) are correct when entering data to JGFF.

Excuse me? How could that be? There was a Radomysl in the Ternobrzeg
district of Galicia. Both Suzan Wynne (Finding Your Jewish Roots in
Galicia) and Felix Gundacker (Gazetteer of the Former Galicia and Bukowina)
agree on this.

agree on this.It's quite simple, Peter,
I'd said that >from "all four Radomysl in modern Ukraine no one of them is
located in Galicia area." It means that in the territory of old Eastern
Galicia that now belongs to Ukraine, there isn't Radomysl.
At the end of my posting, I've also said that:
">from four (4) Radomysl (s) in Poland, one fits your search. Location:
RADOMYSL 5041 2157 N Poland 115.6 miles SSE of
I had also attached the URL of old Galicia map, idicating that Radomysl is
located on the tip of this map:
And if you look at this old map, you'll notice that Radomysl is indeed
located near Tarnobrzeg, which is in agreement with yours, Suzan and Felix
observations. This is part of old Western Galicia. We are all correct, just
my message was simply misunderstood.
The original question has stated:
"Can anyone help me locate the town of Rudomishel in Galitzya ?", and
"A soundex search on the "Shteitel" gives around 20 names, but I have no
idea which, if any, is correct"
Since Galicia as an entity does not exist for over 80 years, I've been
trying to guide Genner through two countries, Poland and Ukraine to allow
her to understand process of finding the corrrect shtetl >from ShtelSeeker

I looked at this map, and found, within the borders of Galicia, 2
towns, not very far >from each other, both called Radomysl, one near
Zawichost and one near Dumbrowna. This still leaves the question that my
husband posted open.
How in the world do we decide which Radomysl in Galicia is the one that his
folk lived in?
Thank you for your help, but I, at least, am still stumped.

p.s. Najman is Spanish spelling for what English spelling would be
Nachman...or nun chet mem nun, to be totally exact.

in the group, I felt to share my observations.
Radomysl near Zawichost, and near old Ruusian border is actualy called
Radomysl nad Sanem (on the River San). this is tiny village, located on the
East side of the river, far away >from all other shtetls, there is nothing
behind the shtetl, but swamps.
The other Radomysl is actually called Radomysl Wielki (the Great Radomysl),
surrounded by other shtetls, known >from it's market place.
Where do you think Jews prefered to reside. In kleinike shtetlach over the
river in marhes or in the Great One?
If you still in doubt, there is another solution. Small Radomysl is located
in Tarnobrzeg province, and the Great One is in Tarnow Province. By writing
to provincial archives of those provinces, one can receive (or not to
receive) birth certificate and the correct answer.
But why is this really so important, in which Radomysl in Galicia person
was born? They are just few miles apart anyway.
