 23663 - Stanislawow: Interwar records at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum $10.95   
Select Format:

Megan Lewis

Jews constituted 25% of the population on Stanislawow, Poland (now Ivano-Frankisk, Ukraine) between the world wars. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum holds thousands of pages about everyday Jewish life in interwar Stanislawow, the surrounding county and East Galicia in general. Although some records predate World War I, most of the records concern the 1920s and 1930s. For Stanislawow, the Museum holds passport applications (currently being indexed by Gesher Galicia), records of Zionist organizations such as Karen Hayesod, school records, birth and death records, emigration case files, probate files, personnel records of the Jewish community, Jewish Masonic lodge records and much more. This presentation will explore these records, highlight the genealogical treasures that can be found and discuss some of the challenges in using these collections. While the presentation will focus on Stanislawow proper, other towns included in these collections include Kolomyya, Zabolotov, Bolekhov, Tlumach, and Snyatin.
