Finding your Surname in the Galizien Village Familybooks
Family books should I order?:
We have created an database of all surnames found in the
Galizien Village Familybooks (except for 3).
The database can be searched by entering a
surname in the GOOGLE or BING field below and clicking on the search button.
Note that you must use Google if your name contains accented characters. Bing is better at finding names without accents.
There may be other search result differences between these two search engines.
Neither search engine will find feminine surnames at the end of very large towns due to size restriction on search engines.
In particular Bolechow, Brigidau, Dolina, Dornfeld, Gelsendorf, Hartfeld,
Josefow, Josefsberg, Kolomea, Lemberg, Neusandez, and Stryj will have to be searched manually by
opening up surname listing for those
towns and doing a search (normally CTRL-F) in your browser. Please advise our webmaster if you notice any differences in addition to the ones we have already noted.
The result of either search will be a list of all familybooks in which your surname is found. Each link on the search result page will take you to a list of all surnames in a particular village book.
