Where is the record? #galicia #records

On Ancestry.com there are 2 (two) records of death for Benjamin LUKACZER in Stanislaw, one for 1880, another for 1883 (see attached). In both records, Ancestry says that the original data came from the JRI Galicia of JewishGen. I searched the JewishGen, the Gesher Galicia, the JRI-Poland, and FamilySearch to no avail, no ANY record of Benjamin LUKACZER's death in Stanislaw in the 1880s. Of course, there are records of death for other Benjamins in various years, from Brody, from Radziwill, but nothing from Stanislaw. 
Is there someone who could clear my confusion and direct me to the record of death for Benjamin LUKACZER in Stanislaw in 1880 and 1883?

First, let me say that searching Ancestry or any other commercial database is a very poor substitute for using JRI-Poland and Gesher Galicia for Galicia records and JRI-Poland for records from other areas of Poland. 

Specifically, much of the data on Ancestry that is sourced from JRI-Poland has not been updated since it was added over 10 years ago. And much of the data are only finding aids to record indices on the JRI-Poland online database. 

Ilya, in your search, you identified two death records that included the name of Benjamin LUKACZER, not the death of Benjamin. Actually, one record reported the death of Benjamin's wife Scheindel in 1880 and the other his son Salomon in 1883 as shown below. In both records there are links directly to the images of those records. 

So, JRI-Poland and Gesher Galicia are where Galicianers should search first for your family from Galicia. Of course, Ancestry may be one of the best source for identifying the town in Galicia where your family immigrated from using US immigration and naturalization records.
