My mother's family lived in Ozimina, near Sambor.  Does anyone have any information on this town?

Dear Helen:

If your search the JRI-Poland database https://www.jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm for town of Ozimina, there are 131 entries. Of those 131 entries, 7 are for FALLER and 8 for BITTNER. Some of those matches are for both surnames. Of the FALLER/BITTNER entries, all but one are in Sambor. Sambor is the town where residents of Ozimina registered their vital events. 

In addition to those types and years that are in the JRI-Poland database, we have indexed records for Sambor not in the database covering births up to 1917 and marriages/deaths up to 1936. 

If you are interested, please contact me privately.

You should also look at the Gesher Galicia online database which has some earlier marriages indexed.

Ozimina is listed in Gesher Galicia's Galician Town Locator (https://www.geshergalicia.org/galician-town-locator/). As Mark Halpern mentioned, its Jewish Administrative District, where vital records were filed, was Sambor.

Listings in the JewishGen Gazetteer (https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp) suggest that Ozimina is now either Mala Ozymyna (small Ozymyna) or Velyka Ozymyna (large Ozymyna) -- villages within c.10 miles of what's now Sambir, Ukraine.

This article in the Słownik geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego (Geographical Dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland) describes Ozimina:
http://dir.icm.edu.pl/pl/Slownik_geograficzny/Tom_VII/789 . Perhaps someone who reads Polish can skim it to see if it mentions anything of interest -- e.g. number of Jewish residents.

Helen,

I have mapped Jewish communities extensively using the JewishGen communities Data base and historical maps. If you try this link you will see Ozimina in the middle of the screen and Sambor in the upper left: http://easteurotopo.org/leaflet-maps/galizien-und-nordost-ungarn.html?lat=49&lng=24&zoom=10#12/49.4637/23.4019 

Here is a look at the village using the Mapire website: https://maps.arcanum.com/en/map/secondsurvey-galicia/?bbox=2597584.132158747%2C6352737.121584824%2C2608189.769833315%2C6357031.927111597&layers=11
I hope you find this useful. I am happy to consult on mapping communities any time.
