Thank you for sharing this. Am interested in Lemko areas Pielgryzmka and also Serednica, lesko, Ustrecki Dolnya (sp?) and where surname of Keno comes from. What do clothing and hat styles tell about various regions?
If you have Facebook, then check out this collection of photos of Lemkos https://www.facebook.com/old.border.mandrivka/posts/653152765059293?__xts__%5B0%5D=68.ARCWQyE8Y4vb-srF22A198J3Kech4QkD8cELLTZpBYsxkbOLoY3ZvzpS-L3Ohjn5MHRVlFajd14grjD6IrVV2060oe9Wju0Pecd1CSFLvM7AzNZO0Idk_FHB_i8Lllu5oDN479hfbaCUIYOoRmnU3led3_7J-oEgjkjx9IKMRKEL0Y0UAbdKJQ&__tn__=C-R
I would like to learn more about my ancestors who lived in Galicia, Poland in the 1800s and came to America in the late 1800s and early 1900s. One side of the family has the surname: Gawlik. The other has the surname: Jareck (listed in some records as Jaretzky). Since none are still living, can you tell me if there is a Galician database /archive where I can find out more about my ancestors — some sort of census records, perhaps? Although they were ethnically Polish, I know that some of them followed Russian Orthodox religious traditions. I am curious how that came to be.
Hello from New York. I am looking for any photos of synagogues from Podvolochisk or Staromischyna, under Austrian-Hungary rule, prior to 1910. Thank you
