At the center of the Jewish communities of Galicia and Bukovina were the people themselves. This section of the website is a database of all of the people documented in the Association’s activities. Names were assembled primarily from our project documenting old Jewish cemeteries. Some additional names were assembled from archival documents, interviews and other materials. This database is a commemoration of many people for whom this is the only documentation of their existence.

This is the best place to start for those interested in family research.
