Re: Last name TOR, from Komarów Kadlubiska Poland

There are several places in Poland called Kadlubiska, but only one is near a Komarow, as far as I can tell. That is Komarow-Osada, about 3 mi southwest of a Kadlubiska, in Zamosc County, Lublin Voivodeship. This Komarow and Kadlubiska were part of Galicia only during 1772-1809, after which they were...

I am currently trying to acquire more directories for Ukraine, from both before and after 1917. This ...

Re: Searching for Mayerowitz

Some territory that is today in Ukraine was formerly in Poland or the Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia. Currently, when you restrict the geographic scope of your search by changing "Any Place" to "Ukraine," results will NOT include directories classified under Poland or Galic...

Re: Looking for 1914 Grodno doctor

There is no way to copy text directly from the image. Even if there were, you would be copying OCR output, which often has errors that wreck machine translation.

Re: Granet Family from Odessa

Searching doesn't reveal any Granets in the Odessa or all-Russian Empire directories currently on the site. The closest name I can find in Odessa in these directories is Гернет, which could be a different family.
